An Assessment of the Detroit Public Schools Construction Systems Program.
Featherstone, Richard L.
The Construction Systems Program (CSP) is the management process utilized in the construction of additions to four schools in the Detroit School District. The objectives of CSP were (1) to reduce the time required to plan and construct new buildings and additions, (2) to reduce the cost of new buildings and additions, and (3) to maintain or improve the quality of new buildings and additions. This program assessment provides information to aid the members of the Detroit Board of Education in making decisions about future commitments to systems management and systems construction in the building programs. The first part, the introduction, covers term definitions and provides a list of project planners and a report overview. The second, or background section, deals with goals developed by citizens for the School Housing Division and goals for CSP, and describes the organization necessary to goal accomplishment. In the third section, procedures and management, the critical steps taken for the establishment of program direction and the management of the CSP project are discussed. The last section, project outcomes, describes CSP schools and assesses the effectiveness of CSP in relation to the time and cost objectives. A related document is EA 004 753. (Author/MLF)
