Abstract

It is widely recognised that construction is an information intensive and complex industry. Traditional computational techniques have faltered due to the sheer number of information interfaces and complex relationships. The proliferation of mega projects that transcend traditional boundaries, cultures, and disciplines warrants the need of a rigorous system in evaluating and managing construction projects. The present trends towards multi-participant mega projects have heightened the need for an effective and efficient evaluation and monitoring by the stakeholders. Effective, systematic monitoring and control of information flow is a critical ingredient through the life-cycle of construction projects. For instance, the control of information to describe the required work, support decision making and analyzing the physical progress. This chapter focuses on the issues of evaluation and monitoring of construction project and developing a systematic model considering the Malaysian construction industry's view point.
