FAST TRACK TO EARTHWORKS EMMAS/CALCULATORS
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, large earthmoving or excavation works; the installation of underground piping systems (eg drainage or water reticulation); a network of roads & paving; concrete foundations & structures; buildings & finishes; or boundary security fencing, to name a few.
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 speadsheets 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. NOTE: For the EMMA to work, values must be inputted to all lines in Sheet 2 TABLES, from Month 1.
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.
