Quantifying lost labor productivity on construction projects is difficult and sometimes subjective. A widely accepted way to quantify losses is the “measured mile” approach. It compares periods of a project that have been impacted by change to those that have not been impacted. As currently practiced the measured mile relies on subjectively identifying that reference period. In this paper the measured mile and a variant, the baseline method, are analyzed and compared to a new, proposed…

Improved Baseline Method to Calculate Lost Construction Productivity

AbstractThe measured mile/baseline method has been widely accepted to quantify labor productivity loss, which is demonstrated by comparing the impacted and unimpacted/lightly impacted portions of the

Using measured mile method to quantify the loss of labor productivity in Iraqi construction site

The construction sector in Iraq has faced many challenges. One of the major challenges is the lack of measuring the productivity of the labors who are working in the construction projects. Although

Practical Ways to Identify Measured Miles

AbstractChange is any addition, deletion, or revision to the general scope of a contract and may require an adjustment to the contract price or contract duration of a design or construction project.
