Abstract:

A wide range of U.S. Air Force construction projects completed in the continental United States were evaluated to 1 measure the effectiveness of factors impacting the construction process, 2 measure the key indicators of project success, and 3 determine the relationship-between these input factors and indicators of success. Input factors and measures of success were developed from previous research and applied to the military construction environment. The four key measures proposed to indicate project success included 1 project quality and performance, 2 cost variability, 3 schedule performance, and 4 safety. The factors assumed to most significantly impact success were 1 design basis, 2 qualified key leaders, 3 compatible objectives, 4 well defined responsibilities, 5 control systems, and 6 project environment.
