The Construction Scheduler feature is useful when performing staged construction analysis for a bridge model. Use the scheduler to define (or modify) a construction schedule in a scheduling spreadsheet and to view the schedule in a Gantt chart. The scheduler automatically creates the required staged construction load cases to analyze the bridge model based on the specified schedule. Staged construction load cases typically use groups to refer to collections of structural objects in the model. CSiBridge allows groups to be defined easily as part of the bridge object definition (see Step 5 on the Bridge Wizard or the Bridge > Bridge Objects >Groups command).
