W4 Stoneworth Paving Company
Stoneworth Paving Company specializes in highway paving jobs for the State of Virginia. When the state
first awarded Stoneworth the contract, it stipulated a 1% penalty for each week Stoneworth was late on a
completion date. Preston Flintrock, the project coordinator for Stoneworth, began to notice that the last
two jobs were three weeks late, and the paving job that was due to be completed in the next two weeks
was behind schedule. When Preston went in the field to investigate, he found the job to be understaffed,
supplier delays, and a high work rejection rate of the repaving needed. As a result, Preston decided to
establish a better system of project control and present it to his boss.
1. If you were Preston, what characteristics would you look for in a new control system?
2. Will a new control system be adequate for the problem? Explain.
