Abstract : The report presents a method of determining the construction contract performance times for military construction projects. This method is based on information that is regularly reported as feedback during the execution of a construction contract for military construction, Army projects. By organizing the data from the manpower-utilization feedback reports, a model is formulated and mathematically derived. An example of data reduction is presented, and the results of applying the methodology to these projects are reported. A proposal of implementation of the methodology in U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' district offices is presented. (Author)
