Rethinking Earned Value & Schedule Management on Construction Projects
Solving the World's Construction Performance Problem
by J. Gerard Boyle

This is an essential, groundbreaking book for public and private buyers of construction, contractors and sub-contractors, designers, project managers, lawyers, Earned Value specialists, forensic claims analysts, schedulers, dispute resolution experts, academics, and anyone interested in improving performance and productivity on construction projects. Among the topics discussed are the following: - Exhaustive critique of existing Earned Value analysis that compels changes to current theory and practice - New Earned Value analytics for construction, integrated with resource-loaded CPM schedules represent a paradigm change - Worked examples of resource-loaded CPM schedules using the new EV Performance analytics - Identification of reliable performance thresholds for progress, productivity and resources - Understanding the interconnection of progress and productivity and performance patterns over time - How to create meaningful, resource-loaded, CPM schedules - Analyzing schedule float in concert with the new analytics - Why current cause and effect delay analysis is fundamentally flawed because it ignores root causes - Why delay claim analysis must always account for productivity - The problem common to all contract delivery methods and how to correct it - Why construction projects fail - Specific steps in creating a successful construction program - Game theoretical & other approaches to implementing a performance-based system - Using commercial dispute resolution to contemporaneously resolve claims and improve performance going forward - The importance of probabilistic (Monte Carlo) schedule analysis & problems with current practice

J. Gerard Boyle has over 40 years of experience in construction and is a recognized expert and practitioner in all aspects of project management and performance analysis. In the first half of his career, he was a senior executive with a general contracting and construction management firm, and, later, a senior executive with a project management and construction claims consulting firm. Mr. Boyle is an internationally published author and presents regularly to the construction industry and academia on best practices in Earned Value Management, Critical Path Method scheduling, Contract Delivery, Forensic Claims analysis, Dispute Resolution, Contractor Performance Evaluation, Monte Carlo Schedule risk analysis, and related topics. He is certified as a forensic delay analyst (CFCC) by the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering International, and as an expert in project management (GSC) by the Canadian Construction Association. He has conceived of, and implemented, Earned Value project and schedule Management systems for multi-billion construction programs on all types of construction including heavy civil, roads, tunnelling, sewage treatment plants, airports, as well as industrial, institutional and commercial building construction.
