Unformatted text preview: 1.040/1.401 Project Management Nathaniel Osgood Technology and Development Program Center for Construction and Research Education Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Massachusetts Institute of Technology Outline Class Objective Course Information Context Lecture Outlines Mission Objective Inform professionals in the art and science of directing and coordinating human, equipment, material, and financial resources to develop a project in a way that they could give maximum attention to project details in the most costeffective way possible while maintaining a broad perspective of the project. Enhance the following attributes of these outstanding professionals: Technical skills. Communication skills. Decision-making skills. Problem-solving skills. Interpersonal skills. Leadership skills. Outline Class Objective Course Information Context Lecture Outlines Mission Handouts Syllabus Handout: Course Description Course Organization Academic Honesty Survey (Problem set 1) Term Project Part I (TP1)c Class Schedule Monday & Wednesday (Osgood) Lecture 1:00 PM 2:30 PM Friday (Grimaldi) Focused on Contractor practices Interactive discussion Recitation 3:00 PM 4:00 PM Office Hours: TF,12-1pm (Osgood) Guest Lectures Dr. Oddmund Granli Megaproject organization Megaproject control Bill Fitzgerald (Behavioral components) Dr. Roberto Pietroforte (Faade scheduling) Victoria Siriani MIT Capital Planning Office David Myers MIT Facilities Management Prof. Fred Moavenzadeh Analytic & Qualitative Components Analytic: Lectures, readings, problem sets Tools for managing complexity, uncertainty Presented so Understand assumptions Understand shortcomings Anticipate future directions in construction Qualitative: Recitations, readings, problem sets Empirical components Understanding of current state of practice Reference Textbooks Primary Readers: System & Project Management, PeaMora, Anumba, Lyneis, Soibelman, Samii, Park, Kalligeros.

Implications Increasing sophistication of designs High Time pressure Cost and cost pressure (low profit) Complexity Uncertainty/Risk (cost, schedule, quality) Turnover Conflict & Litigation (claims 1% of cost) Industry Context II Important industry Construction value >$850B Roughly 8% of US GDP 700K construction firms 90%<10 employees 215K GC/Building, 442K trade contractors Buildings are 70-80% of market Sectors Residential const Commercial Industrial contractors Infastructure and heavy construction Affiliated institutions Professional services Suppliers Financial Services Uncertainty in Construction Uncertainty in Final Project Cost I Uncertainty in Final Project Cost II Uncertainty in Final Project Cost III A calamitous history of cost overrun Spectacular Projects with Spectacular Cost Overruns PROJECT COST OVERRUN (%) Suez Canal Sydney Opera House Concorde Supersonic Aeroplane Panama Canal Brooklyn Bridge 1,900 1,400 1,100 200 100 Sources: Peter Hall, 'Great Planning Disasters Revisited', p. 3; Robert Summers, 'Cost Estimates as Predictors of Actual Costs: A Statistical Study of Military Developments', in Thomas Marschak et al., eds., Strategy for R&D: Studies in the Microeconomics of Development (Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1967), p. 148; and Mette K. Skamris, 'Economic Appraisal of Large-Scale Transport Infrastructure Investments', Ph.D dissertation (Aalborg: Aalborg University, 2000). Growing Expenditures, Declining Control Recurrent Themes Complexity Performance ($, time, quality) Uncertainty and Risk Flexibility Incentive Conflict Crucial role of qualitative and quantitative factors Parties Diverse Motivations Owner Role: Commissions project, arranges financing Common Motives: Good design, save $, finish quickly Designer (Architects & Engineers) Role: Designs facility (typically w/owner) Frequently oversees construction Common Motives: Recognition, happy client Contractor(s) Role: Builds facility (often w/design assistance) Common Motives: Make $, finish quickly, happy client Survey of Construction Phases & Class Topics Survey of Construction Phases & Class Topics Feasibility Studies and Preliminaries Understanding project finance and evaluation Helps understand economic challenges faced by owner and contractor Understanding and managing risk Insight into risk premiums, incentives, making choices under uncertainty, management Deciding on fundamentals of contract Delivery type (organizational method) Award method (how decide who hired?) Contract type (how pay?) Conditions Project Evaluation and Financing Financing mechanisms Public, private and hybrid funding Time value of money, present value, discounted cash flow analysis Evaluation measures (NPV, IRR, Cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis) MARR and WACC Risk Analysis Risk Management Identification, Classification, Mitigation Basics of Decision Analysis Decision Trees Risk attitude Essential concepts of preferences Sources of risk in construction Particular emphasis: Changes and Claims Example Decision Tree Accepted 6.75M 6750000<LowestCompetingBid 6750000-Costs 0 7000000-Costs 0 7250000-Costs 0 7500000-Costs 0 Rejected 6750000>=LowestCompetingBid Accepted 7M BidPrice 7.25M 7000000<LowestCompetingBid Rejected 7000000>=LowestCompetingBid Accepted 7250000<LowestCompetingBid Rejected 7250000>=LowestCompetingBid Accepted 7.5M 7500000<LowestCompetingBid Rejected 7500000>=LowestCompetingBid Delivery, Award, Contract Method Delivery Methods How to organize?
