Abstract

Real-time monitoring and control on site construction is a growing field and still in its infancy. A persistent problem in construction is to develop the as-built actual physical progress schedule of construction scene. The primary aim of this study is to propose prototype software for monitoring project progress automatically. Consequently, this study addresses Digitalizing Construction Monitoring (DCM) model for monitoring the physical progress of the project. A questionnaire survey form designed and conducted in the Malaysian Construction Industry to investigate the existing practice for evaluating and monitoring the construction site progress and utilization of computer based application system for monitoring project progress performances. The respondents were asked to indicate their view using a five-point scale. This paper discusses the initial results of a pilot survey and proposing and developing prototype software for improving the construction project progress monitoring. User can retrieves the project information in form of images and by using photogrammetry techniques every detail of building should be precisely documented to obtain reliable measurement from photographs and simulated with CAD drawings to develop the physical progress report. The integration of photos and drawings will enable construction manager to develop progress reports in a more consistent and accurate way and more accurate as-built project schedule can be transferred to facility manager. This system bridges the gap for monitoring and controlling the construction work by implementing the information technology techniques.
