Microcomputers for both project scheduling and cost control were used during design and construction on a major project in Honolulu. Hotel Street Mall, located in the heart of Honolulu's Central Business District, is an integral part of the downtown bus circulation system. The project involved roadway improvements which converted historic Hotel Street into a permanent bus/pedestrian mall. Because this project involved extensive planning and design with 25 organizations actively participating, and due to funding constraints, a computerized system of reporting was established to provide weekly updates and reports of the status of critical activities. These reports assisted greatly in making crucial decisions for project management.
