Abstract

Purpose – This paper is based on research addressing quality of construction schedules. The paper aims to structure a Schedule Health Assessment method and present it as a means to carry out the evaluation of construction schedules.

Design/Methodology/Approach – The development of the Schedule Health assessment method can be characterised as constructive research. The structuring of the method is based on analysis of factors forming the overall quality of construction schedules. The method has been tested in a proof of concept study. This comprised a case study in which four master schedules developed by junior production managers were evaluated using the Schedule Health assessment method.

Findings – It is possible to construct a method for the quality evaluation of construction schedules.

Research Limitations/Implications – The completed testing is still rather limited since it is based merely on experiences of junior production managers with a single case.

Practical Implications – The Schedule Health assessment method can in a useful manner make the quality evaluation of construction schedules easy to approach and effective process.

Originality/Value – This research has produced a novel method for the quality evaluation of construction schedules.
