PMV can be calculated based on aspects of the project such as quantity of material manufactured offsite, percentage by volume of precast components and so on. The Department for Education defines PMV as (materials + offsite labour) / (materials + offsite labour + on site labour). Quantitative approaches such as this require that data is available in a suitable format and in sufficient detail to allow comprehensive calculations to be undertaken.
