ENGLISH: A construction of an asset is challenging work associated with huge responsibilities. Project manager’s main challenges in construction are generally Time-Cost-Quality dependent. In addition to these factors, Project Managers or construction Manager have to deal with numerous uncertainties in the process of construction. Considering its diverse nature and activity performed in construction. Here major role playing factor in success of a project is efficient scheduling of the construction project. While scheduling a project, the factors which are considered are mostly tangible, such as resources, labor and capital. My main objective in this research is to reduce the duration of the activity involved in construction, while considering qualitative factors like site organization, Labor Skills and quality of equipment used and reveal the effect of these tangible factors on duration of the project. Since these factors are difficult to be measured using classical mathematic theories. We have opted Fuzzy Logic Theory as our base, which can measure mathematically with use of Fuzzy Logic Tool Box in MATLAB®. In order to implement the proposed technique, various membership functions need to be estimated using judgement and guidance of experts. One of the main advantage of the proposed technique is that it can be easily implemented in existing computer programs and thus having a possibility to schedule a project efficiently.
