Bottom Up Planning

Bottom Up Planning is how most projects have historically managed their lookahead or short term plans.

They have a master schedule but the engineers and delivery team mostly plan from first principles on a daily and weekly basis. The master schedule then has to be manually updated to adapt each month.

This is best if you don't want to be bound to your master schedule.

Top Down Planning

Top Down Planning is an amazing new world that Aphex Planner unlocks.

Projects Import the next 4-12 weeks of their master schedule > the work is distributed to engineers and delivery team > they break the plans down to the required detail

This approach saves engineers loads of time by pre-building the structure of the plan and keeps the short term plan attached back to the master schedule. This connection makes updating the master schedule much faster and helps track real causes of delay.
