Project performance appraisal frameworks as blueprints for bridge quality control
Paper i proceeding, 2016
Various project performance appraisal frameworks (PPAFs) have been established in practice for engineering projects of both the public and private sector. Their aim is to measure the targeted and tangential attributes of project performance and conformance to specified quality standards. In this paper, the following PPAFs are summarily presented: CONQUAS and BDAS of Singapore, PASS and BAM of Hong Kong and SBTool of Portugal, Spain and Italy. Then, the current state of research regarding the key bridge performance indicators (KBPIs) is noted and considerations regarding the possible adaptation of a PPAF-inspired blueprint for a general quality appraising framework for roadway bridges take place. Concluding, the importance of lessons learned and best practices in the establishment of a novel conceptual and computational framework is discussed.
