LIMITATIONS OF RESEARCH
The research is aimed at identifying the trends that govern the mobile and wireless technologies of today. These trends will help us not only understand the direction that these technologies will take in the future but will help us relate their impact on the business scenarios of project planning and management. The research would aim to understand the developments that have led to the present condition of the mobile technology as well as wireless technology and how these developments have formed the platform that gave us the present scenario of the 3G technology and Wi-Fi systems.
- Identify technological trends of mobile technology and wireless technology that signify current technological advancements and thereby define a path for the future.
- Identify trends in mobile and wireless technology that help in project management.
- Relate the study of the current trends in mobile and wireless technology to its growth from the past and study the use of such technology to gain competitive advantage for businesses.
The problem statement for the research includes:
- Time duration of the project is not sufficient to conduct an in-depth study.
- Limitations of data available from various sources.
- Limitations include the assumptions that were made while analyzing the questionnaire.
- The data collected might not be a true representation of the population under study.
The section of literature review attempts to understand the various aspects of mobile technology and the wireless technology, their elements and applications in helping businesses achieve success as well as grow. This section also looks at trends of mobile and wireless technology that might pave way for the future days.
The impact of these technologies on the way businesses are run, project are managed have been tremendous. Mobile technology signifies portability. The devices that are commonly used to ensure information accessibility on the go or the devices that use mobile technology to ensure information portability are laptop computers, cellular phones and smart phones, palmtop computers, PDAs (personal digital assistants, mobile GPS (Global positioning systems) navigators or trackers, wireless debit card and credit card readers and payment terminals, etc. Wireless technology on the other hand signify ‘not being tied down’ due to ‘absence of wires’. These two technologies together enable the process of amalgamation of a number of other current technologies including a spectrum of communication technology gadgets such as smart phones, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G, GSM, GPRS, and VPNs etc (Zheng and Ni, 2005). These two technologies combined together help to manage businesses around the world without the barriers of distance, time zones or even information availability. The research papers of Coyle (2001), Beaulieu (2002), and Phillips (2002) have gone on to discuss the trends and the affects of wireless and mobile technology. They have highlighted not only the technological aspects but the commercial aspects of these technologies and the effect that these technologies have in the way a business of today functions. Ancar and D’Incau (2002) in their paper talk about their findings of the perception of consumers regarding the value proposition of mobile technology. They highlight the perceived values of the consumers as against other technological initiatives at commerce. The paper also tries to relate the current trends in mobile commerce with the future of commerce. Kenyon and Perkins (2000) in their research paper titled “China: Data in the Air” try to highlight the role played by mobile and wireless technology in the everyday lives of the people in the most populated country in the world, thereby trying to throw light on the depth of technological imprints in human lives.
Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem. In it, step-by-step Research Methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem. In it, step-by-step methods are followed to solve a particular problem. It refers to a search for knowledge. It can also be defined as a scientific and systematic search for pertinent information on a specific topic. In fact, research is an art of scientific investigation.
There are two types of data collection source:
Most of the information will be gathered through primary sources. The methods that will be used to collect primary data are:
- Survey method
METHOD OF SURVEYING:
The general methodology of this study relies largely on the survey questionnaire which will be collected from the local building contractors of different sizes by mail or by personnel meeting. Also some interviews with industrial practitioners will be conducted to produce to check effectiveness of questionnaires.
The questionnaire will tested with a pilot survey for clarity, ease of use, and value of the information that could be gathered. The questionnaire survey is divided into two parts. The first part consists of general information like type of company experience value of their project etc. and the second part consists of the construction risk factors for evaluation.

SAMPLE SIZE: Sample size is 75 respondents.
SAMPLING PROCEDURE: Simple random sampling will be used for selection of the sampling units from the population.
TYPES OF SAMPLING
There are basically use to be two types of sampling technique
- Probability Sampling
- Non-Probability Sampling
Consistent with the study objectives different tools and techniques such as Diagrams, graphs, pie charts, will be used for data analysis. Interpretation of data will be based on regimes exercise aiming at the assessment of study objectives.
