Industrial technologies are evolving, and in construction, there is no exception. But the most recent developments extend beyond building equipment alone. In this 21st century, technological advancement is the order of the day. New approaches for construction are seen in the field. Such advancement in construction technologies are driving efficiencies which results to better-quality outcomes.
The importance of project management software is signified as it helps project managers to manage different aspects of a project in an efficient way. For example, Primavera P6 for project planning and control and @Risk for risk assessment and management. However, in the current practice of Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) construction, a number of construction management software programs are being implemented where some have common functions, thus, there are duplication of works and activities. For example, Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power (KHNP) has developed Earned Value Management System (EVMS) that integrated cost and schedule, virtual construction management system that can improve constructability by linking 3D design model with construction schedule, and Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) and Risk Management System. The developed systems are currently implemented throughout construction stages.
