Real-Time Construction Project Performance Assessment david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Construction industry development depends on a deliberate effort to improve upon the performance of projects being implemented. This requires measuring the performance of key activities on projects using indicators that truly reflect the perspective of key stakeholders. Acknowledging the weaknesses in existing indicators, this book proposes a paradigm shift in both the existing measurement philosophy and the Approaches:(i) moving away from expecting “project autopsy reports” towards “project health reports” (ii) moving away from considering the outcomes of a project in terms of the success/failure dichotomy into project performance results in identifiable criteria and (iii) acknowledging the uniqueness of every project and the contingency factors which calls for contingency measures of assessment. A contingency-based assessment tool is designed which could be used to assess construction project performance throughout its life cycle, to identify the factors at play and which will provide the necessary information to facilitate project management decisions. The tool also documents all relevant events which are invaluable for learning and improvements on current and future projects

This study applies a benchmarking approach to evaluate and compare the Performance Efficinencies PE of Jui-Naw main canal irrigation system, situated in the lower Hari-Rod river basin of Afghanistan. In this study, a set of performance indicators are used to evaluate and compare irrigation systems within the system comprising of head (U/S), middle (Mid/S) and tail (D/S). Secondly, a data envelopment analysis (DEA) is applied to measure the efficiency of farmers in wheat farms at different sections of the main canal. Evaluation of irrigation performance indicators was carried out using three groups of performance indicators namely, Service Delivery Performance (SDP), Financial Performance (FP) and Productivity Efficiency Performance (PEP). These performance indicators are also used to compare the performance of four other irrigation systems. The comparative performance indicators developed by IWMI were adopted in order to evaluate the efficiency of the irrigation systems. The overall result of this study can be used to support the decision making and guidelines for the planners, governments, and donor agencies.

Developing and Implementing a Parental Involvement Program david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
This book engages in a research project that provides an in-depth explanation along with specific reasons of the importance of parents’ involvement in their children’s education. In reflecting on my past and present experiences as an educator, I have found that students who display behavior problems, lack of motivation toward schoolwork, and disengagement begin to experience academic failure and become social outcasts. I have also observed that these students have very little parental involvement in their education or educational interests. These students are being deprived of the outside support, guidance, and encouragement that come from within the home. It is a proven fact that student success is embedded in parental involvement (Hinkle, 2011). Although a large number parents do not know how to help their children with their education, with guidance and support, they may become increasingly involved in home and school learning activities and find themselves with opportunities to teach, to be models and guides for their children.

Evolutionary Algorithms david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Evolutionary algorithms have proven to be an enormously powerful and successful problem-solving strategy for optimisation problems. This book presents a novel application for implementing Evaluation Algorithm to tune Model Base Predictive Control (MBPC), MBPC systems require accurate models if high performance is to be attained. Most chemical processes are nonlinear in nature, which makes developing precise models challenging. Indeed, there are no procedures available for tuning MBPC that offer robust performance in the presence of model uncertainty. Using of Evolution Algorithms offer the opportunity of incorporating multiple objective functions to tune and optimise MBPC in term of H-two, H-infinity and LQC design. This resulted in increased stability robustness and the satisfaction of the performance objectives.
