A multi-purpose EMMA can be used for all structural steel works on a project, quantified in tens, hundreds or thousands of tons or tonnes
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.
Given a detailed breakdown of the steelwork scope of works, quantified by categories, this calculator will provide a reasonable estimate of man-hours required. For a hypothetical example, click Real time sync at foot of tabulation, enter secret key word 'category' and click connect.
