  • Deliver your project on time without overhead costs
  • Work with simple and usable scheduling documents
  • Train the rest of your team to normalize scheduling


If only you could get the schedule you deserve, you could:

But most of all, prevent panicking last minute because your project is delayed once again, costing you $$ each day.

With 20+ years of experience overseeing $5B+ in global construction for U.S. agencies, I founded CPM Schedule Solutions LLC in 2018. We believe in:

  • Everyone is stressed and overworked
  • Schedule documents are way too long & complex
  • Projects get delayed and end up costing millions of $ more
  • Construction teams leave scheduling till the end as they have no idea how to use it
