A Decision Support Model For Construction CASHFLOW Management

Abstract: The extreme level of construction business failures and their association with financial issues has placed financial management in the forefront of several business imperatives. This has highlighted the importance of cash flow forecasting and management that have given rise to the development of several forecasting models. The original approach to the utilization of project financial models has been largely a task‐oriented perspective. However, the dominating role of “project economics” in shaping “corporate economics” will place the organization strategy susceptible to the projects.

This article approaches the concept of cash flow forecasting and management from a fresh perspective. Here, the utilization of forecasting models is prolonged beyond their traditional role as a guideline for monitoring and control of progress. They are thought to be tools for traveling the project in the direction of corporate goals. The task is dependent on the idea that the main parties could work out the terms and attempt to complement their priorities.

As part of this approach, a model is suggested for management and forecasting of task cash flow. The mathematical element of the model integrates three modules: an exponential and two fourth‐degree polynomials. The model produces a forecast by potentially combining the results of data analysis with the experience and understanding of the forecaster/business. In light of corporate and business objectives, the produced forecast is then manipulated and replaced by a range of favorable but realistic cash flow profiles. Finally, through a negotiation with other parties, a compromised favorable cash flow is achieved. This article shall describe the novel way the model is used as a decision support tool. Even though the structure of the model and its own mathematical components are described at length, the info processing and analysis parts are briefly described and referenced accordingly. The viability of the model and the approach is demonstrated through a scenario.

The way I prioritize is before I start the computer, I make my list. It doesn’t need to be in order. I could put a true quantity by items to order them or stay them to alert me to their importance. Obviously the thing that can really trip you up here is the distraction of the internet. My own weakness is Instagram, cat videos, and the many newsletters I sign up to. I’ve no magic here, a will is used because of it of metal to resist the pull of the rabbit hole. If you got during that last sentence without clicking a single link, the potential is experienced by you for a will of steel.

If you clicked, you’re just like the rest of us. I have a tendency to give myself just a little goof-off time before I get yourself started the computer and then reward myself with a bit more goof-off time at the end. The key is consistency, which are such a nice word and so easy to say, but it is so hard to be consistent, specially when it is yourself to hold you in charge of your actions. My next post will be about developing consistency through daily routine and how you can produce a workable and fun routine for yourself that will help you run your creative business. Meanwhile, if you have questions about this post, please feel free to comment below and I am going to answer.

Libertarians are pet cats. In libertarians, the drive for independence, personal control of your respective own life and future is paramount, and the tribe is supplementary. A lot of people feel this drive somewhat. We can’t stand to find out what to do, we want to spend our money for the plain things we like, and we don’t like that money to be taken and spent by others with different values. Libertarians take this to its reasonable extreme. Opponents of libertarianism like to cast stones, build up a straw man, and knock them down. Libertarians get this too easy. For instance, both liberals and conservatives prefer to claim that libertarians have confidence in atomistic individualism.
