What is Schedule Acceleration


Schedule Acceleration is a set of methods used to minimize the duration of work included into the project in order to:

  • Accomplish it faster than it was originally estimated (to surpass the schedule);
  • Stay within the schedule if something critical was previously delayed (overtake the schedule);
  • Decrease a serious project performance delay down to an acceptable level;

A need for project schedule acceleration may arise when certain factors behind the schedule have been changed, for example a customer vitally demands a project to be completed faster, or if work was delayed due to some reasons, for example protractions with supplies. There are several methods to accelerate the schedule (they can be used all at the same time):

  • Canceling the staff’s days-off, vacations, weekends and adding certain overtime work;
  • Adding more resources (manpower and equipment) to complete certain tasks and stages faster (“Crashing” method of schedule compression);
  • Performing more tasks in parallel mode, without adding additional resources (“Fast Tracking” method of schedule compression);
  • Reducing the scope of work to skip or withdraw certain tasks from the schedule;
  • Implementing some innovative technologies and tools increasing the productivity;
