PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION

A "Project" can be defined loosely as an item of work which
requires planning, organizing, the dedication of resources and the expenditure
of funds, in order to produce a concept, a product, or a plant. The
second edition of Project Management for Engineering and Construction
focuses on "Plant Projects," all of which require design engineering, the
purchase of materials, and their installation.
Almost all companies have personnel who are trained, skilled and
dedicated to the execution of their projects. The individuals who lead these
efforts are called project engineers andfor project managers. Supporting
these project managers are such personnel as design engineers, procurement
personnel, contracts officers, estimators, cost engineers, planners,
construction managers and a variety of technical specialists.
In many cases, the type, size and complexity of projects vary
greatly and, therefore, the skills and experience of project engineers,
project managers and support personnel can, similarly, vary in capability.
The major factors which are essential for the successful execution
of projects are:
1-cost Management:

Many projects have cost as the number one objective. This requires

the project to be completed within budgeted cost. Adequate business

skills of the project manager are essential to meet this objective

Time Management:
To meet the "cost objective," the efficient management of time is
essential. This means that the predetermined schedule, upon which the
cost estimate was based, must be met
