Nowadays, projects involve many activities. Hence, the review process requires the scheduler to be experienced both in field operations and in computer scheduling software. However, the dilemma faced by contractors is that many senior project managers are experienced in the field but not in computers, whereas many young engineers are skilled in computers but not in field operations. This work proposes a generalized framework to represent schedule knowledge, and a computer-based system that analyzes a project schedule and offers corrective advice on potential errors by integrating case-based and rule-based reasoning.
