• Question

  • Greeting, I used to measure % scheduled completion of a construction project by the elapsed times, in another words, a project has 2 year contract period and passed 1 year up to today, its % scheduled of completion shall be 50%, where the % completion will adopt what Project calculated.

    The vary between these 2 figure is the % delay / ahead.

    I would like to ask your opinion on the method of measure as mentioned above is reliable and accurate?

    If the schedule is linear, then the passage of time might be a good measure of completion, but real plans are rarely, if ever, linear. The spread of activities over the course of a plan can vary widely and quite often with construction projects, concentrated activity is near the end (i.e. the "push to finish").

    I think the best approach is to look at the work load of the plan. Develop the plan, set a baseline, track progress via the Work Variance.
