The purpose of this work is to apply the re modified minimum moment method of resource leveling to construction projects in India. The method is based upon the critical path method & it was developed with the assumption of no activity splitting and fixed project duration with unlimited availability of resources. The criteria of selecting the activity that has to be shifted from its original position to a better position is judged by the change in the statically moment of the resource histogram before and after such movement as well as by Resource Improvement Coefficient. To achieve the objectives of the work, the data of construction of three residential apartment projects in Nashik city is taken. Initially the activities are arranged according to their Earliest Start Time (EST) then as per the Re modified minimum moment method & as per their Latest Finishing Time (LFT). Bar chart & histogram is prepared for each solution. Maximum daily requirement of mason, Effective Force Ration (EFR), Stand by Force Ratio (SFR), moment of histogram & Resource Improvement Coefficient (RIC) are calculated for each solution from the respective histograms. These values are then compared for each solution. It has been observed that Maximum daily requirement of mason, SFR, moment of histogram & RIC are reduced & EFR is increased by Re modified minimum moment method.
