AbstractThe purpose of this investigation is to illustrate the potential use of integrated scope-cost-schedule model systems in civil construction. This study is important to help provide an example of how a civil project completed using common methods could have been planned and monitored using an integrated scope-cost-schedule system. Publishing the results of this example will highlight some of the issues with integrated model systems particular to the civil industry. A recent questionnaire survey completed at the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE) resulted in 175 responses from all types of construction industry professionals, 50 responses were from the heavy civil construction subdivision. None of the civil contractors reported using an integrated model system though some used components.
