About the Edition

This thesis analyzes the effect of contract remuneration type and project complexity on the desirability of planning and scheduling specification clauses for construction projects. The information in this thesis is based on the analysis of responses to a survey that was sent to randomly selected construction companies, large owners, and various Naval Facilities Engineering Commands. For the survey, traditional definitions of lump sum and cost reimbursable contracts were used, and an easily quantifiable project complexity rating was developed. The analysis provides practical insights on which planning and scheduling specification clauses should be included for projects of different complexities and remuneration types. It also provides valuable insights on the differences in how contractors and owners view each planning and scheduling specification clause. Conclusions and recommendations are presented based on the results of the analysis.
