Abstract: There are different methods and techniques to measure the construction progress which are used for projects of different sizes. The construction progress can be measured with different tools for small projects where there is less complexity and inadequate project controls budget. The combination of resource loaded level three construction schedule and Excel® spreadsheets have been used successfully for projects under $50M. Using this method, direct man-hours from the master control budget have been loaded into the predefined resource breakdown structure by commodities in Primavera®. The agreed upon rules of credit assigned to each activity under activity steps are used to measure the physical progress of each activity. The planned and updated schedule exported into Excel spreadsheets through a customized report in Primavera. Finally, the construction progress report by project and area are generated using graphical and tabular reports using visual basic programming.
