This publication contains four papers that offer both theoretical and practical advice on how to make control systems more effective on design and construction projects. The use of automated cost and schedule control systems is widespread. Yet, the successful use of these systems is often hampered by inadequate understanding of how best to integrate these systems into project management. These papers emphasize the management requirements for control systems and how the computer can be used to achieve these goals.
