Title: EM241-21 - Construction Input Assessment in Front End Planning - Instructor's Guide
Publication Date: 6/1/2010
Product Type: Education Module
Status: Supporting Product
Pages: 0
Many projects do not include adequate construction input during front end planning (FEP), resulting in projects falling short of their goals. Historically the primary stakeholders in a project (i.e. owners, designers, and constructors) are not aligned and tend to operate in their own domains. As a result the needed collaboration is not obtained and projects do not achieve the level of success that is possible.

CII has developed an Excel®-based decision aid—Construction Input Assessment Tool (CIAT)—to help get construction input at the right time and level of effort during FEP. CIAT provides project stakeholders with a means of determining project items and activities that require construction input during front end planning. It also will assist in evaluating if adequate construction expertise is available or if outside sources are needed.

This education module provides the venue for teaching the background of the tool, how, when and with whom to employ it, and provides an opportunity to use the tool in hypothetical situations.

Education modules are not available for download from the Internet.

Abstract

Many projects do not include adequate construction input during front end planning (FEP), resulting in projects falling short of their goals. Historically the primary stakeholders in a project (i.e. owners, designers, and constructors) are not aligned and tend to operate in their own domains. As a result the needed collaboration is not obtained and projects do not achieve the level of success that is possible.

CII has developed an Excel®-based decision aid—Construction Input Assessment Tool (CIAT)—to help get construction input at the right time and level of effort during FEP. CIAT provides project stakeholders with a means of determining project items and activities that require construction input during front end planning. It also will assist in evaluating if adequate construction expertise is available or if outside sources are needed.

This education module provides the venue for teaching the background of the tool, how, when and with whom to employ it, and provides an opportunity to use the tool in hypothetical situations.
