Performance on Tunnel Construction
A construction company has to bore a 15m diameter tunnel for a high speed train line in an environmentally sensitive area. Special attention is paid on schedule interfaces with contiguous line developments. Kwantis consultant developed a schedule risk model to address and evaluate these criticalities.
Kwantis consultant applied a risk and performance management approach that included uncertainties evaluation, project progress measurement (Earned Value Management), and the evaluation of acceleration scenarios. A dedicated probabilistic model was developed to focus on the Tunnel Bore Machine performance.
"Future performance estimation through probabilistic model"
Ultimately, the project ended ahead of schedule, in line with the probabilistic schedule estimates. Consequently the project risk & performance approach was extended to other similar projects within the company.
