To determine how project teams successfully realize projects, practitioners must first understand how people do things before they know why they do things. This article examines the techniques and tools that project managers use to implement construction and research and development (RD) projects. In doing so, it identifies four project types and defines construction and RD projects; it The unit cost of road construction in dollars per kilometer is the sum of the subunit costs of the road construction activities. Road construction unit costs are estimated by dividing the machine rates by the production rates for the various activities involved in road construction. The road construction activities considered here are surveying
