Swinerton Builders has been an active leader in the construction industry for over 130 years. Throughout that time, we’ve worked to remain on the cutting edge of construction technology—we were among the early adopters of cloud-based scheduling software. Our mission is to be the preferred builder and trusted partner in every venture that we pursue. Swinerton has realized that the construction industry is suffering from a lack of comprehensive planning and scheduling training. Therefore, we designed and built this training course around Oracle’s Primavera P6 to use our scheduling team’s particular expertise to solve that lack and further our mission.
With our logically organized, easy-to-digest training course, clients can learn about everything from establishing personal/company setups within the system to create and update a project schedule to creating specialized BI reports with the information they’ve entered. The training course includes thorough instructions for how to add, customize, and use practically any function that clients might find relevant for building a schedule. In addition, the course specifically indicates methods that are considered “best practices,” so clients always know the methods that Swinerton finds particularly effective.
Clients can leverage this training to build and maintain transparent, trackable schedules for every step in a project, perform regular updates to track potential delays and disruptions. Clients can also learn how to implement What-If Schedules in such situations to identify different mitigation efforts and clearly demonstrate to owners the impacts of different options.
