PRESENTATION: Integrating a Portfolio with Integrated Master Schedules
As the Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) concept becomes a more common method for managing complex projects, it is important to understand the full breadth of what integration means for project planning and execution. Contemporary scheduling tools are built around recursive structures, from activity to Work Breakdown Structure to Enterprise Project Structure. Using Sound Transit’s current portfolio as a guide, we will look at the capabilities of a standardized, integrated program.
