Abstract

One of the aims of the development process of large, complex civil engineering projects like port development, is maximising the difference between value and costs throughout the project's entire life-time. This optimisation is only possible if value and costs are quantified. Quantification of value and costs can easily be carried out in a relative way with respect to an initial value and initial costs derived from an early concept. Therefore, a set of aspect systems is utilised, each of which represents a part of either value or costs and thus controlling the various clusters of design engineering working on the various components and elements for the total civil engineering system. 1 Introduction The development process of complex civil engineering projects such a
