Schedule Planning in Vico Office

Welcome to the Schedule Planning section of the Vico Office Structured Evaluation.


Schedule Optimization Portion for Structured Evaluation


We always say that there are two parts to the scheduling equation: creating the optimal schedule and then managing to it on the jobsite.  This portion of the Structured Evaluation will look specifically at the how-to's for location-based quantities and schedule optimization with flowline principles.


There is much to discover, so let's get started. We recommend gathering the evaluation team in a conference room and projecting the video. Each participant can have the software loaded on their own machine and follow along with the workbook.


Please note that successfully answering the five quiz questions is necessary to advance to the next phase of the evaluation.

With Vico Office you get fresh, future-proof technology that goes well beyond sequencing animations and gantt charts.  Welcome to flowline views in which you can see all your crews per location and see how they're performing.  Work within an integrated 3D-4D-5D workflow designed to avoid fire-fighting and eliminate claims.  Under the Lean mantle, Vico scheduling works with Subs, not against them and, in the process, de-risks your project.
