College/University Lecture and Course Materials

This webpage contains materials that make up part of a university lecture materials and associated exercises for project bundling including solutions for each exercise. These materials can be used for transportation professional self-learning or distributed to students to become more familiar with bundling for project and program delivery.

Project Bundling can help increase the performance of all three legs of the construction “stool,” time, cost, and quality. It is intuitive that only having to do the paperwork for one contract will make that process go five times faster than it would for five individual projects.It is intuitive to anyone with the most basic understanding of economics that purchasing the necessary materials for five projects will get one a better price than if one is buying materials for a single project. Finally, quality is enhanced, along with speed, as work crews perform the same projects over and over in five projects instead of for one. And, of course, everything improves when the relationships between project personnel grow through familiarity. Improved relationships lead to improved collaboration.
