This volume contains the proceedings of an ASCE Specialty Conference on Project Controls: Needs and Solutions. The papers presented at this meeting and contained in this publication identify the most pressing problems with the current practice of project control and the systems, whether computerized or manual, that are employed to manage both design and construction efforts. These articles also propose and discuss possible solution strategies to these identified problems. For reasons of expediency, project control in this vein is limited to cost, schedule, and estimating issues. Special areas of emphasis include change management, design-construction system integration, conceptual cost control, performance assessment, extant control techniques, scope definition, and available new technologies. A concluding paper ties all the individual recommendations together, sorts and resolves the conflicts between these suggestions, and offers an implementation strategy and timetable.
