Abstract:
Civil Engineering Project Managers (CEPMs) plan, direct and coordinate a wide variety of construction projects, including buildings of all types of residential, commercial, and industrial structures, roads, bridges, wastewater treatment plants, schools and hospitals. CEPMs may supervise a whole civil engineering project or just part of a project and although CEPMs usually play no direct role in the actual construction of a structure, they typically schedule and coordinate all design and construction processes, including the selection, hiring and oversight of specialty trade contractors. CEPMs therefore, supervise the construction process from the conceptual development stage through to final construction whilst simultaneously meeting time, quality, economic, environmental and health and safety performance criteria as defined by the client. CEPMs evaluate and help determine appropriate construction delivery systems and the most cost-effective plan and schedule for completing the project. They divide all required construction site activities into logical steps, budgeting the time required to meet established deadline. Based upon the massive duties and responsibilities that CEPMs characteristically undertake before and throughout the whole construction cycle, this research has taken place. The predominant aim of this research is to develop a new mathematical model that can be used for classifying the aptitude (capability) of the Civil Engineering Project Manager (CEPM).
