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.

Questions: 

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.
