Abstract

This paper presents a system that supports project time and cost control in an integrated manner. The system utilizes object-oriented modelling to represent the process of project delivery. A set of control objects is designed to map the process of project control. Eighteen key indicators are considered to represent the resources utilized in each control object and serve as sensors to highlight problematic areas associated with unfavourable performance. A Three-Tier Client/Sever computer system is designed to implement the developed system. Daily, weekly, monthly and/or yearly, period-by-period, and cumulative to-date project performance reports are generated to provide the status at project, control object and resource levels. An example drawn from the literature is analysed to allow for comparison with the results obtained using the proposed methodology. The example also serves the purpose of demonstrating the use of the proposed system and illustrating its essential features.
