The management of construction projects using web sites

Abstract: The Project Management procedures on a typically sized construction contract are examined and thecurrent use of specific software designed for the construction process is briefly described. Existingsoftware packages dedicated to the construction project management process are then reviewed andthe conclusion is reached that, given the ease with which web-sites can be established, instead of usingcommercially available software, the construction process can be just as easily managed byestablishing site-or contract-specific web sites which would primarily be used for horizontal andvertical two-way information dissemination. With the streamlining of information dissemination theconstruction project team could then devote interaction time to 'soft' management activities such asteam motivation and synergy.
