Abstract: The Evaluation of construction baseline schedules aims to provide a high-quality project schedule. However, obtaining a project schedule free from technical defects remains a challenge to construction planners and schedulers.The result of having a high-quality schedule is achieving the desired project completion dates and avoid any disputes between the construction project parties which may be present due to the technical defects of the schedule itself. Many organizations and consultants had developed some evaluations techniques for assessing the baseline schedules from different prospects. The aim of this study is to classify and filter out the evaluation metrics and parameters of the project baseline schedule, in order to facilitate the schedule reviewing and evaluating process. This is achieved by introducing a clear, arranged and classified evaluation metrics to let the schedule reviewerto list down all the schedule technical defects and convert them into clear comments in order to rectify them and having a schedule free of defects.
Keywords: Baseline Evaluation, Baseline assessment, Schedule evaluation metrics.
