The presentation describes the implementation of an integrated project control system on behalf of a public Owner in Italy, committed to the project management of a capital investment of two Billion (circa) of Euros regarding an infrastructure programme. I leaded, as a project manager, the multidisciplinary consulting group on behalf of the JV which had awarded the consulting project named “Project Management System for Quadrilatero (PMS)”; I also designed CAPITOLO, the software package used for the implementation of the project controls system, based on EVM methodology.
The project controls system (PCS) described in this paper is a core part of the project management system (PMS) designed to support Quadrilatero, a public scope company acting as an owner of highways major scheme in Italy started in 2006.
The presentation first describes the scope of work of PMS, and then focuses on the advanced project controls system implemented. At conclusions, also some lessons learned are provided.
