The superprojects of today pose new and complex logistic and management problems for project managers. The information flow at the project level is enormous and traditional methods of information handling are not adequate in meeting this new management environment. This paper presents concepts central to the problem of project information control. Data base methods are examined as a means of organizing data on complex construction projects. Adaptation of these methods to applications in the construction area is examined and information regarding hardware and software requirements is presented.
