Estimating a construction project usually based on activity unit price analysis that consists of materials, manpower and machines. Unit price analysis gives an effective tool for construction management purpose. This effectiveness depends on how accurate the calculation of each variable in the unit price analysis. In a developed country, where standardization is a common condition, the accuracy gives less deviation than in an uncertain condition. The uncertainty occurs due to lack of effective standardizations, which usually happens in a developing country. It gives difficulty in construction project estimating calculation. Based on this problem, a study is attempted to propose a solving technique by using a linear programming method for number of labor composition optimization. The approach considers uncertainty condition of manpower’s productivity that gives a probabilistic characteristic. By doing so, it could be used to increase competitiveness capabilities and labor selection process.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
