Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the way of dealing with the components of
project implementation in civil projects of Shiraz University (SU) and Shiraz University of
Medical Sciences (SUMS), to compare the executive indicators in civil projects of both
universities. Indeed, results of studies on executive indicators of civil projects at SU and SUMS
have been presented as articles at the Second International Conference on Construction and Project
Management ICCPM 2011 in Singapore; and the International Conference on Civil Engineering
and Transportation ICCET 2011 in Ji Nan, China, respectively. This study, however, focuses on
the comparison between the executive indicators of the civil projects at both universities; based on
the ideas of the decision-makers and authorities of the projects. In this study it has been found that
the difference between some indicators is small. It means that the ideas of both groups in both
universities are similar or close to each other; which may show the accuracy in completing the
questionnaire and the methodology used. In this paper, the results of this comparative study are
presented and discussed.
