What Is Project Management Software?
Project controls are a form of project management that concerns the procedures, tools and resources used for monitoring, planning and controlling the project over time. Project controls consist of several activities:
Align the project to the company's goals
Create a risk management plan
Collaborate on project schedules
Forecast outcomes based on specific actions
Develop a cost management plan
Estimate the project's budget and schedule
Project controls will help you assess all the factors that might affect cost and scheduling so that your business can complete projects under budget and on time. These tools measure the project status, forecast likely outcomes and improve the project's performance to ensure positive outcomes.
Advantages of Project Controls for Construction Management
Construction management is a key part of project success, as assessing various critical factors will improve the chances for your business to do well. With project management software, you will gain several benefits, including the ability to:
Take corrective action: Project controls alert the stakeholders about potential issues and provide the opportunity to make changes and improve the project's trajectory.
Anticipate the unexpected: Almost every project will experience unanticipated delays, costs and other circumstances that hinder progress. Project controls will anticipate and resolve these issues in advance to keep activities running smoothly.
Stay aligned to plans: For many construction projects — especially those that are large scale with many aspects to consider — it can be difficult to keep the agenda aligned to the original plans. Controlling project factors will ensure everything stays on track.
Positions That Use Project Controls
Project management software is useful for many roles in the project's life cycle. The two roles that will use these controls the most are:
Project controller: Project controllers focus on the cost and scheduling of the project. This program will keep the project controllers updated on the project status and issues. These updates provide valuable data the project controllers need to make strategic decisions about project resources and goals.
Project manager: Project managers overlook the people, processes and outcomes of projects, emphasizing the quality and scope. Since project controls are integrated with project management, the project controller will report changes to a project manager. The project manager will want to know the causes of and potential fixes for the problems the project is having. The project manager may be collaborating on one or a portfolio of projects. Technology for project controls will help with both of these aspects.
Some other positions that may use construction project management tools include:
