Abstract:

The Corps of Engineers can improve the management of its planning and design program by helping customers to better define their design services needs and improve design budget estimates. A design estimating model can improve this capability. A model can also assist in allocating design funds to divisions and districts and in forecasting design workload requirements for various staffing levels. Costs for design services can be recorded using a new work breakdown structure. The reasons for lost design need better definition and lost design must be more thoroughly reported. For very large and complex projects, the Corps should use creative management concepts, separate organizations, and flexibility in interchanging construction and design funds.
