PROJECT MANAGEMENT – it's importance?

One of the main reasons for inefficient project delivery is – ignoring the importance of project program monitoring and evaluation. Unfortunately, this aspect, although known to many contractors, tend to be given little priority.  Monitoring and evaluation, although often considered same, they are actually distinct functions. Monitoring is a process by which a project’s physical progress and resource consumption are tracked on routine basis to establish any divergence to the project base-line schedule and resource allocation. Evaluation is the process of analysing information received through monitoring to predict the project trend in terms of any significant departure from project expectations.

Project management is continuous and objective assessment of a project status. It provides real-time update of the project progress with diagnosis of likely slippages/bottlenecks to facilitate timely decisions.

The project management function consists of

  • Reviewing Project Schedule
  • Preparing and reviewing of micro schedule
  • Periodical monitoring of progress of projects against plan
  • Reviewing cash flow and resource levelling periodically
  • Prediction of trend (likely slippages) based on site data – whether likely to delay
  • Proposing preventive actions for schedule recovery
  • Preparing catch-up plan in case of schedule or cost over run
  • Analysing reasons of delay and identifying responsible party
  • Preparing reports with supporting data and submitting to the contract management team to prepare claim if applicable
  • Generating MIS for over-all project monitoring and governance
  • Reporting on review of Project Correspondence
  • Advising on required Contractor’s actions with relevance to the review of projects correspondence and interpretation of the contracts
  • Preparation of a Due Diligence Report in respect of the tender and the contractual relationship to date between Contractor and Employer
  • Site investigations in order to get acquainted with construction technology and the constraints thereof
  • Review of Employer’s requirements, and Construction/Working Drawings for planning purposes
  • Monthly monitoring, updating and reporting for the previously most updated Programmes of the Works
  • Updating the programmes with the identification and incorporation of causes of delay and disruption or acceleration;
  • Preparation and submission of one month, two months and three months look-ahead schedules.
