The Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are broadly divided into two categories: leading indicators and lagging indicators. Leading indicators measure activities that have a significant effect on future performance of a project. The leading indicator thus help in taking proactive measures, while lagging indicators measure the output of past...

Construction projects have become more complex over time, and cost overruns and time delays have become a global phenomenon. Signs that can indicate future project failure, such as cost overruns and time delays, in early project phases are Early Warning (EW) signs. EW signs are defined as indicators for potential future problems. This research...

The construction sector suffers from flat or sometimes even falling productivity rates while it is one of the least digitalized sectors. A root cause, among others, is poor information management. Recently, the ISO 19650 series have been released to offer the construction industry a guideline for the organization and digitization of information...

As part of engineering projects, turnaround maintenance (TAM) projects also still suffer the issue of reusing knowledge across projects. Although TAM projects have a recurring character, the TAM projects’ schedule performance is still frequently unmet. It is also revealed that rework is one of the causes of TAM schedule overruns. Hence, this...

One of the most common hurdles especially in large infrastructure projects is scope change. Scope changes negatively affect time, quality and usually lead to cost overruns due to underestimating the change order impacts on the project. There are two main categories through which the impacts could be quantified: the first and second order effects...

The problem defined in this research is that the concept “fit-for-purpose” does not have a widely accepted definition in the research field of PM (project management). Also, the link between terms “fit-for-purpose” and ‘project management” has not been conceptualized. The main objective of this research is to investigate the link between fit-for...

Researchers in the past have shown that communication is integral to successful results in a project's design phase. This is said so as there are multiple professionals from diverse backgrounds who come together to prepare a project's design. Consequently, communication between these professionals becomes a key component as it is the way they...

Cost estimation of construction projects is still carried out using highly manual traditional tools and processes, which are deemed as inefficient and have a direct impact in the productivity levels of the industry. Building Information Modelling or BIM is changing the way projects are developed and has introduced some changes to cost estimation...
