Progress monitoring and control

After the plan has been established and the project has started, it is essential to continuously review actual performance against schedule. In general, attention is focused on the following situations.

1) Variance of each task schedule on the time axis

2) Status of progress on an S curve

3) Task efficiency (productivity)

4) Status of the mobilization of resources

5) Status of risk factors

These require information on the latest results, and the procedure and report for collecting it need to be identified.

Example ♦ Information to monitor the progress of a project

An example of information required to capture the progress in ordinary construction/engineering projects is summarized below. Also, an example of a typical composition of information collection routes is given in Table 4-5-14.

(Design) = Status of preparing documents, status of consuming manhours

(Procurement) = Procurement status of equipment and materials, delivery status of equipment and materials, special delivery time requiring specific reporting and attention

(Construction) = Construction work progress report, workers mobilization table, machines and materials inventory table, special status report
