Project Description

Assist Embassy Mexico City's office of Overseas Buildings Operations to review complex schedules (9,900+ activities) to more accurately assess the project's schedule performance. Over the course of this two-semester effort students will work in a team of interns across the United States to analyze historical and proposed schedules, compile key data points, and present results to senior OBO staff members. Additionally analyze current project against historic schedule data from completed projects. Duties will include:
• Review extensive (but non-sensitive) schedule data via PDF, or if available, Primavera P3 or P6 software.
• Conduct bi-weekly intern team meetings and coordination meetings with OBO Mexico City staff.
• Collaborate with fellow interns to develop a team product.
• Assist with other schedule analysis as requested by OBO Mexico City team leads.
• Compile results of research into "final product" schedule analysis in document and Powerpoint formats.
• Review non-sensitive scheduling data to use predictive metrics regarding project schedule performance and completion. Student participants will be required to sign non-disclosure agreements for handing of non-sensitive official Department data.

Preference will be given to students studying architecture, engineering, construction, or project management who have been at their institutions for a minimum of two years, preferably three.
