Progress Delay Factors Analysis in Thermal Power Plant Ash Yard Project Based on PCA Method


Article Preview

In real operation in the thermal power, the ash fields project often cannot be finished following the progress schedule, and this always impact on project running smoothly. In this article some representative delay factors were obtained through the survey and their relationship between themselves were analyzed using PCA method in the SPSS software and their importance of resolving this issue were determined. What is more important, according to this article we can guide our practice and solve our progress delay. It provides us a commanding reference to improve the progress of thermal power plants.
