The ultimate aim of success or profit of the projects is achieved the objectives of specified performance of scope with in the stipulated time by utilizing minimum resources. Today’s open market demands not only cheaper products and services but also better product and services. Increased pressures to reduce the cost have not only led to the migrations of U.S. manufacturing operations to Mexico and Far East but also Singapore and Malaysian manufactures into China and other Asian Countries. The process-based project management system controlled by the quality standards may be viable solutions for the success. In construction sector, rather than adopting the optimum design procedures, the effective construction methodology and planning will result in significant savings in resources. This paper describes the line of balancing techniques to minimize the quantity and maximize the productivity of human resources. The effective utilization of resources by establishing average demand over the maximum project periods by resources smoothening techniques are outlined in this paper.
