This Note documents the results of a study that evaluates data characterizing certain aspects of the management of process plant developments contained in RAND's Pioneer Plants Study (PPS) database. Various management approaches and attributes are analyzed as they relate to project cost, schedule, and performance. The analysis is exploratory, relying on a limited amount of management data. The results suggest that statistical analysis can serve as a useful supplemental tool in research on project management.
