Structured Approach to Project Execution, Monitoring and Control at Operational Level

Mohanty Ashok, Satpathy Biswajit, Mishra Jibitesh

Abstract


Any real project is very complex. Many of the issues of project management are too difficult to be solved by mathematical programming. So the project tasks are very often undertaken on the basis of extremely informal planning. Project activities are also much non-routine in nature as compared to production. This poses problems to devise a structured method and to work in a structured way. This paper presents a structured approach for execution, monitoring and control of project activities at operational level. Here we have proposed subjective evaluation as a means to determine index for activity criticality for selective monitoring and control, index for readiness level for starting execution of an activity, and a structured way to sort out issues for execution of activities. The scope of this paper is limited to operational aspects of task execution and does not include purchase of materials, recruitment of human resources, and finance Key words: Project management; Critical activity; Scheduling; Monitoring; Decision-making
