Study of the Effectiveness of Materials Management in the Construction Industry in Imo State

ABSTRACT Materials Management in the Construction Industry in Imo State have been investigated. In order to reduce wastage of construction materials, the study focused on Success Level in Achieving Effective Materials Management as the Dependent Variable (Y) by introducing five Independent Variables (X1 to X5) thus (X1) Management of Materials; (X2) Skilled Professionals; (X3) Control of Materials; (X4) Inventory Build-up and (X5) Motivation of wor...

Analysis of Factors That Constrain Work Schedule Performance in Construction Projects in Nigeria

ABSTRACT This study examines and analyses the salient factors that constrain work schedule performance and their contributions to the level of project time overrun in construction industries in Nigeria. The realization of project work schedule objectives is usually not achieved with certainly due to myriads of constraining factors encountered during the implementation stage of project life cycle. The survey method of research ...

Healthcare Infrastructure Development Finance: A Comparative Analysis of Direct Government Funding and Public Private Partnership Option

Abstract This study undertook a comparative analysis of direct government finance and public private partnership (PP) option for healthcare infrastructure development. The objective is to assess the cost, time and financing leverage effects of the two financing options. The Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Owerri was used as study location. Two identical building projects: Ward II funded through PPP and Ward 10 funded through direct government financin...

An Evaluation of Partnering Mechanisms on the Procurement of Building Construction Projects Delivery in the F.C.T.

ABSTRACT The study evaluated the effect of cost, schedule, and quality parameters on the realization of building construction projects delivery via the traditional method and the partnering methods (design build and build own operate methods). A total of 5 traditionally procured projects, 5 design build projects and 5 build own operate projects making a total of 15 projects that were used for the study. Data set for the study were collected via the...

Analysis of the Effects of Cost Drivers on Software Project Cost Estimation in Nigeria

ABSTRACT This research work investigates the effect of cost drivers on software cost estimation. Several models exist that provide one or more mathematical algorithms that compute cost as a function of a number of variables or cost drivers. There are also several other tools and techniques available to assist in creating software project cost estimates, they are still very inaccurate. Several authors in software development hav...
