Cleveland, OH – (September 16, 2019) According to the Construction Institute (CII), project controls is a process that encompasses the resources, procedures, and tools for planning, monitoring, and controlling of all phases of the capital project lifecycle. This includes estimating, cost and schedule management, risk management, change management, earned value progressing, and forecasting.
Successful project performance depends on appropriate planning. Project execution is based on a robust plan and can only be achieved through effectively controlling cost and schedule. The development of a suitable project control system is an important part of overall project management and achieving project objectives. It has been proven time and again that project performance can be improved if dedicated project controls systems are in place. Good project control practices can result in more predictable cost and schedule outcomes.
Robust project control systems are typically applied to large capital projects which account for 20 to 30% of capital expenditures. The other 70 to 80% of the spend goes to smaller, plant level projects which often don’t get effective project controls support.
