CE156 – CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT LECTURE No.1 Introduction & Project Development Cycle Introduction      : Construction Project Management is the overall knowledge in planning, coordination, and control of a project from beginning to completion. It requires understanding of modern management   as   well   as   an   experience   of   the   design   and   construction   process. Construction projects have a specific set of objectives and constraints such as a required time frame for completion. While the relevant technology, institutional arrangements or processes will differ, the management of such projects has much in common with the management of similar types of projects in other specialty or technology domains such as aerospace, pharmaceutical and energy developments.  The   basic   ingredients   for   a   project   management   framework   may   be   represented schematically in Figure below. A working knowledge of general management and familiarity with the special knowledge domain related to the project are indispensable. Supporting disciplines such as computer science and decision science may also play an important role. In   fact,  modern  management  practices   and  various  special  knowledge   domains   have absorbed various techniques or tools which were once identified only with the supporting disciplines.   For   example,   computer-based   information   systems   and   decision   support systems are now common-place tools for general management. Similarly, many operations research techniques such as linear programming and network analysis are now widely used in many knowledge or application domains. Hence, the representation in Figure reflects only the sources from which the project management framework evolves.

It is essential that all students of building have an awareness of the variable methods of construction and application of materials in both traditional and industrial practice, in order to adapt their career pattern to the diverse expectations of the industry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
