In this paper, a new project management technique is modified for encompassing decision uncertainty. The previous method proposed is called Analytical Node Activity Hierarchy Process (ANAHP), with current study a Fuzzy Cheng’s technique is being introduced namely Cheng’s entropy technique. The process involves node network analysis along with a provision of fuzzy decision making of available alternative for an activity based on various criteria defined by the decision maker. For construction projects some of these criteria can be cost of the construction, time duration of the completion of work and durability of the component or reliability of the materials. For devising the method, a parametric model problem in terms of variables is described with corresponding independent variables varying from problem to problem. The modified method can help in improving the efficiency and dimensionality of the project management process while compensating for uncertainties. At the end of the paper a scope of the future studies is also mentioned that opens doors to new and more accurate techniques that can also be adopted or modified as per the need for the construction industry.
