Developing a Space and Project Management benchmarking report on behalf of International Facilities Management Association (IFMA). The research study will also focus to identify and develop techniques to optimize the workpspace allocation.
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to address the knowledge gap on the use of benchmarking techniques as utilized by facilities management (FM) professionals for the purpose of identifying means to improve industry benchmarking practices and guide the direction of future FM benchmarking research. Design/methodology/approach Data were collected t...
Most state transportation agencies (STAs) maintain a qualified product list (QPL), which serves as the primary tool for project managers to select products, materials, and equipment during construction or other maintenance projects. The QPL is continuously updated with the help of a product evaluation program (PEP) to ensure quality products, conti...
Understanding the role that facility size and space play in making both accurate benchmarking comparisons and in forecasting operating costs of acquired assets is crucial to effectively managing facilities in an increasingly competitive market. While facility-based benchmarking has been embraced by the industry for some time, there exists little re...
Cost and schedule growth have been a heavily studied topic within the construction industry, particularly related to the horizontal sector or within the context of projects of substantial size. Yet relatively little research has focused on smaller project sizes within the facilities operation and maintenance sector, which were comprised of vertical...
It has become widely understood throughout the construction industry that a direct linear relationship exists between project cost overruns and schedule delays. Much of this relationship is a product of identifiable risks encountered due to issues resulting from contractor's capabilities, owner's change in scope, designer's caused errors and omissi...
Construction projects are fraught with risks. These if occur can impact both cost and schedule of the project. Studies on risk management plan and its phases, risk-based-procurement, risk-based-delivery method selection, and risk-based-bidding, can be found in abundance in literature. However, very little to no research has been conducted to analyz...
