Construction Industry Validation of Schedule Performance Measure
The purpose and expected outcome of the funding that this research proposal is to create an industry-wide standard to measure the schedule performance of construction contractors on an ongoing basis that functions not merely a posteriori, but a priori - not only be reflective, but predictive, and be applicable to any project and at any level of detail.
