  • Ensuring the level 2 IWS is updated to an agreed timeframe for monthly reporting.

  • Ensuring the level 3 schedules are updated when required to reflect work progress and performance, to an agreed timeframe defined by the central controls team,

  • Ensuring that contractor schedules are produced in accordance with processes and ensure that they align to the IWS forecast position.

  • Maintaining daily and weekly work planning in the 4D model.

  • Providing quality checks on the scheduling data.

  • Identifying, evaluating and providing solutions to time-related issues.

  • Coordinating and producing schedule reports to a defined reporting cycle.

  • Assisting in the trend and change process, including analysis of schedule impact, generating performance indicators and providing feedback on areas of risk and opportunities.

  • Adhering to project governance and scheduling standards and procedures.

  • Ensuring all project documents, in particular sensitive nuclear information, are correctly protectively marked, and protected in accordance with the client's policies and procedures.
