Part of: Making Project Control Systems Work


Control systems can be considered as consisting of five major elements. These are: establish the objective or standard to be achieved-quality, maximum duration, resource utilization, maximum cost, etc. ; capture data in such a form that performance can be measured; compare measured performance with objectives; report-determine which items may be out of control and notify the appropriate organizations or individuals; and provide information to assist in controlling. This presentation outlines and demonstrates implementations of various aspects of control systems within the context of these five major elements. Refs.
