A case study of an industrial project is used to identify the number, type, and time of occurrence of design-related problems. The information is then used to develop a model to forecast potential design-related problems. Two methods of forecasting future problems are proposed. Profile curves that tested whether the percentage of problems is linearly proportional to the percentage of progress completed were insightful. The study also found that the number of problems had a strong predictive relationship to the numbers of design and construction man-hours recorded on this project, and models were developed for each of these relationships.
