ALL ABOUT 'EMMAs'

'EMMA' is short for Estimating Manpower Management Application. EMMAs in various formats can be used by site engineers  and supervisors to estimate, plan, monitor, track and control manpower requirements for measurable construction activities. Manpower problems frequently are the root cause of project overruns. Regular use, review and updating of an EMMA will underpin completion of a task on or ahead of schedule.

 

Explanations of an EMMA's workings can be found throughout this web site and on a You-Tube video (see below), commencing with 'Manpower Planning'

 

EMMAs fall into two main categories, namely (1) For use with any single discipline scope of works, from preparation of S-curves and histograms, followed by measurement of progress and monitoring of manpower on a regular basis. A choice of 3 formats is provided, (a) for a task of up to 18 days duration; (b) up to 18 weeks; & (c) up to 18 months. OR (2) For use with the estimating of piping manhours and preparation of preliminary S-curves & histograms, covering pre-fabrication and field erection (3 site areas), for carbon steel, stainless steel and low/high chrome content piping systems.
