Practical Ways to Identify Measured Miles

Sometimes there is no clear-cut section to establish a benchmark, or to separate the increased actual costs. In an excellent paper on the subject, William Ibbs and Josh Chittick provide a review and synthesis of project management literature and court and appeal board decisions to present practical considerations in the identification and application of measured miles. The intent is to help contractors, owners, consultants and other parties step through a logical process for preparing and presenting a credible measured mile analysis.
