PART -1: Irrigation& CAD (Dam and Allied Works, Canals and Allied Works, Canal C.D. Works, Tunnels and Allied Works, Preliminary and Maintenance Works, Hydraulic Gates and allied works and Leads and Lifts applicable to all Departments. PART -2: Roads and Bridges PART -3: Buildings including Electrical Works PART -4: Drinking Water Supply and Public Health (Only for works done by manual means)

2) Brief description of item of work:

Brief description of the item of work to cover all important aspects of the work included in the Data. On reading the description of the item, the user should be in a position to assess the various cost components involved in the work.

3) Data for assessing quantities:

The data reflects various assessments / assumptions made in arriving at the quantities of materials, machinery, labour and other in-puts. In case of plants and equipment the output of main plant is worked out and the requirement of all other inputs and assessed to match the output of the main plant. Cycle time of operations is the criteria for assessing the output of equipment. Generally, the equipment manufacturers furnish the output of machinery under ideal conditions of working. Suitable job and management efficiency factors are considered while working out the average output of machinery under field conditions. In case of combination of machinery and manpower, the assessment of manpower shall match the output of machinery.

Though cycle time of operations is the criteria for hourly / daily out-put of machinery work-force, the actual progress of work depends on several other factors such as power interruptions, minor break-downs, time for meals and other needs of work-force, stray rainsetc. Therefore, it is the general practice to consider 50 minutes as the actual working time per hour for working out the hourly / daily out-put of machinery / work-force. CWC / BIS guide-lines stipulate the actual working hours for the purpose of equipment planning and utilisation. The daily out-put is computed duly considering the actual available working time and feedback from the field.

• For gate and hoist works, it is the general practice to specify the quantity of work in terms of number of sets of embedded parts / gates. The requirement of machinery and work-force for cutting, bending, fabrication, erection, painting etc., is assessed to commensurate with the task involved.

• The data for gates and E.M. Parts is arrived per Metric Tonne (MT) quantity.

• The data for Hoists and Gantry Cranes is worked out on the basis of capacity in tonnage.
