This paper offers insight on the subject of civil engineering management that links the initiation and completion of civil projects. The engineering management systems that are described in this paper prove worthwhile for companies undertaking civil constriction and engineering projects. These aspects are closely related to project management guidelines for the various phases involved in civil engineering projects from project commencement through forecast, planning, design, construction, commissioning, and closeout.
This paper studies the various management principles like Health Safety and Environmental Management, Quality Management System, and Financial and Commercial Systems. Within the topic of Quality management, fundamentals of project management, technical and operations management is also studied.
The civil engineering project managers require practical tools for efficiently managing the project schedules, so that the project is efficiently contracted for, finished on time and contained by the specified budget, and comply with all laid down project specifications, (Twort and Rees, 1995). A civil engineering project is composed of many interconnected job activities controlled by a detailed project compass, financial plan, and agenda to distribute assets required to accomplish the premeditated goals of the project.
In general, all the projects in the industry are clearly defined by three factors - scope, budget, and schedule. There are several phases between the first phase and completion of civil construction projects which have
