For more than thirty years, Construction Project Management by Clough and Sears has been considered the preeminent guide to all aspects of the construction project management process, including the Critical Path Method (CPM) of project scheduling. It combines a solid foundation in the principles and fundamentals of CPM with particular emphasis on project planning, demonstrated through an example project. This Sixth Edition features new pedagogical elements such as end-of-chapter problems and questions, and a full suite of instructor's resources. New information on the Earned Value Analysis (EVA) system and introductory coverage of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Lean Construction in the context of project scheduling help make this text thorough and up-to-date. Also included is coverage of building construction ecamples, in addition to a highway bridge with a complete cost estimate, including SI units, illustrates each of the principles of project management. Using this basic information and the case studies in the appendix, readers are given project management problems and hands-on project management experience.
