Schedule updating plays a large and significant role in the management process of any construction project. Yet, it is a task seldom performed given the intricacies and complexities of commercially available planning and scheduling software tools. This is largely due to the manual paper-based practices currently used for recording activity progress status and generating a new updated schedule.
UPDATERTM is an application intended for automating the collection process of progress data in the field. UPDATER allows for collecting, recording, and manipulating of progress data electronically.
This paper describes the components, structure, and functionality of UPDATER
