Real-Time Project Tracking

by Garold D. Oberlender, Oklahoma State Univ, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Excellence in the Constructed Project


Too often project tracking is based on a job costing program which charges costs to the project based upon invoices from vendors and payrolls of employees. The information obtained from job costing programs is of little value to management of a project because reports are generally received 30 to 60 days after the work is in place. This paper discusses the need for the timely transfer of information from the field to the office in a format that is defineable and measurable.
