A multi-purpose EMMA can be used for any 'bulk' activity, involving a physically measurable unit of construction work scope that is quantified in tens, hundreds or thousands. For example, electrical cable tray or racking or cable laying/pulling are ideal individual subjects for this EMMA. Alternatively see 1.2. to calculate manhours for all these activities combined.
The EMMA comprises 3 'pages', namely 'INPUT' (Basic data that must be inputted in order for the EMMA to function), 'TABLES' (Spreadsheets for inputting target & actual progress percentages, manhours etc), and 'CHARTS' (Where inputted spreadsheets are presented as S-curves & histograms). The EMMA can be used:
Initial requirements for inputting are:
Thereafter, inputting should be in accordance with notes provided.
Use of an EMMA will be of particular interest to anyone with responsibility for getting a work scope package completed on or ahead of schedule.
The following calculator can be used for manhours involved in any one, or all, of the activities associated with cabling that are included. As well as inputting quantities, User can also change the unit manhour rates provided, for rates more in keeping with that User's environment.
