A REVIEW OF SCHEDULING PROCEDURES FOR STATE HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION PROGRAMS

AN ANALYSIS WAS MADE OF STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT SCHEDULING PROCEDURES IN 35 STATES FOR STATE HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION PROGRAMS. THE PROGRAMMING PROCESSES MAY BE CONDENSED INTO TWO BROAD ASPECTS--DECISION-MAKING AND EXECUTION. THIS STUDY EMPHASIZED THE EXECUTION OR ADMINISTRATION PHASE BY REPORTING AVAILABLE ESSENTIAL DETAILS OF SCHEDULING AND CONTROL METHODS AND PROCEDURES, WITH ONLY INCIDENTAL ATTENTION TO THE BASES FOR MAKING DECISIONS ON THE PRIORITY OF PROJECTS IN AN EXTENDED PROGRAM. DATA WERE ACCUMULATED BY REFERENCE TO PUBLISHED MATERIAL AND BY PERSONAL INTERVIEWS WITH OFFICIALS OF 35 STATES, 2 CANADIAN PROVINCES, 7 METROPOLITAN COUNTIES, AND 17 CITIES. AN OVER-ALL EVALUATION WAS DEVELOPED USING 3 FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF PROGRAMMING' ADVANCE CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM, SCHEDULE OF LETTING DATES, AND SCHEDULE OF PRECONTRACT ENGINEERING ACTIVITY. EACH STATES PROCEDURE WAS EXAMINED TO DETERMINE THE DEGREE OF FORMAL UTILIZATION OF EACH ELEMENT AND THE FUTURE TIME PERIOD OVER WHICH THESE ELEMENTS WERE EMPLOYED.
