Abstract:

Control of a Naval construction project is a significant and difficult problem. Project complexity, and contract type, military urgency, and contractor identity affect the degree and type of control necessary. This thesis discusses a summary of essential guidance for performance of functions the interdependency of cost, quality, time, and performance and a survey of techniques and methods for managing each of these parameters. A naval construction project can be one of the most difficult problems to manage and evaluate. This is largely due to the difficulty of measuring performance and its interaction with cost, quality, and time. In managing the performance, the results will vary according to the different forms, such as contract administration, formal views, financial and engineering reports, quality assurance and various status indexes.
