In this paper, an evaluation of two major studies with regards the connection of management in the field of Civil Engineering shall be discussed and presented so as to pick the right resources needed for furthering studies with regards the same topic. One of the studies to be cued is that of the research and understanding performed by Oakland and Albridge (1995) reported in the International Journal of Quality and Reality Management entitled "Quality management in civil and structural engineering consulting". This study is noted as a major writing that has been proposed and completed by the authors to pursue an understanding on the importance of quality management upon the projects accepted by civil engineers and how these process affects the reputation of the said professionals who are aiming not to simply please their clients but to do the best they could for the human society. The other study to be cued is that of the one written by Hinkelmann (2004) entitled KM-SISO: An approach for knowledge management in civil engineering, which is an obvious description of the major procedure on gaining the right knowledge on how engineering projects should be managed.
To compare both studies, the researcher of this paper aims to present the vital parts of each study in a table format that would work best in identifying the key sections of each journal allowing the readers of this comparison paper a clearer view on what each study aims to promote with regards the importance of management in the field of Civil Engineering.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
For the study of Oakland and Albridge, quality is treated as the main issue that is involved in the evaluation of any civil engineer whether they stand as a group/firm or a sole contractor.
Hence, to acquire that quality, What type of management do Civil Engineers need to apply to come up with the most effective process possible to apply quality and time essence in their profession
This study proposes to place attention on the process by which civil engineers handle the tough challenge of applying both quality and style through effective use of time to meet project deadlines.
The key question being given attention in this particular study then relates: How must Civil Engineers recognize the importance of time management to meet quality and style in their work and how does the KM-SISO system apply to this prospective target goal
Researchers of this study notably expected to find the right people who would be able to give them the right answers to their queries primarily based on the experiences that these people have had in the field of Civil Engineering. For the completion of the entire project, the researchers aimed to find the rig
