Develop or Improve Construction Scheduling Methods and Model for Construction Projects

This project aims at collecting data for a large number of completed construction projects and evaluating that data to make a correlation of the pay items involved to the time needed to complete that project. This data could evaluate existing production rates, which could help forecast production rates and construction schedules/completion dates for the future. South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) currently uses a visual basic model to calculate the number of working days related to construction activities. Ideally, this research would produce an updated model with updated production rates. There is also potential to include historical data related to other construction activities, such as, utility relocation. This research could investigate other state transportation agencies to improve on current practices.
