Construction project management is a relatively young field. However, its impact has been quite remarkable. It has become an important practice for improving the efficiency of construction operations around the world. This book deals with some topics and tools of the large field of project management.
This book is dedicated mainly to undergraduate engineering students, especially Civil Engineering students where most of the applications are presented in the civil engineering field. It provides the reader with the main knowledge to manage a construction project from preliminary stages to handover. 

It includes seven chapters: 
  • Chapter 1 provides the planning stages of a construction project. 
  • Chapter 2 is dedicated to presenting different scheduling techniques along with the schedule representation. 
  • Chapter 3 is dedicated to discussing the scheduling methods of non-deterministic activity durations. 
  • Chapter 4 is dealing with both the resource scheduling and smoothing problems. The schedule compression is, also, presented in chapter 5. 
  • Chapter 6 is dedicated to project finance and cash flow analysis. 
  • Finally, chapter 7 is dedicated to project control. Many solved examples have been added to enable the students to understand the material presented in this book. Also, each chapter is followed by exercises for training purposes.
