A HIGHWAY APPLICATION OF PERT

THE GROWING COMPLEXITY OF HUMAN UNDERTAKINGS REQUIRES MORE AND MORE OF THE ADMINISTRATOR. IT REQUIRES CONSTANT ATTENTION TO THE SEVERAL STAGES OF A PROJECT IN EXECUTION AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE INTERRELATIONS OF THESE STAGES SINCE THE SUCCESS OF THE PROGRAM DEPENDS UPON IT. THE POWER OF DECISION OF THE CONTRACTOR CANNOT SUFFER, IN TIME AND NATURE, ANY LIMITATIONS WITHOUT IMPAIRING SOMETIMES CYCLICALLY THE SUBSEQUENT STAGES OF THE PROJECT. THE ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION OF EACH STAGE, AS WELL AS ANY CORRECTION, WHEN NECESSARY, MUST BE CARRIED OUT IN GOOD TIME. PERT CPM IS MENTIONED AMONG THE METHODS OF WORK ORGANIZATION WHICH WAS CREATED WITH THE AIM OF CONTROLLING ENTERPRISE UNDERTAKINGS. IT HAS BEEN EXTENSIVELY AND SUCCESSFULLY APPLIED IN THE ENGINEERING FIELD. IN THE HIGHWAY SPECIALITY, ITS APPLICABILITY IS WELL KNOWN, BUT IT IS REMARKABLE IN ITS INTENSITY. THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENTS SHOULD DEMAND IN THEIR BIDS, CHRONOGRAMS OF TIME AND COST, BASED ON THIS METHOD. WORK STOPPAGES IN THE EXECUTION OF A PROJECT MAY BE ELIMINATED OR REDUCED. A GENERIC APPLICATION IS GIVEN FROM THE SURVEY SERVICES TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PUBLIC BIDDING. /IRP/
