Abstract

Decision Making in present day construction management and its associated activities is a involved process due to the phenomenal increase in various facets of constructional activities. The complexity of the decision parameters adds new dimension in the decision making process. Thus the need to rationalize the various inputs and optimize the construction planning practices becomes imperative. Several considerations that are qualitatively described by the terms such as high, medium, low, good, bad and satisfactory have an important bearing on the Civil Engineering aspects of projects and the structures therein. The subjective judgments implicit in these qualitative terms cannot be directly incorporated into the analysis
