Project Management Phases Defined

In the construction industry, Project Management Phases are defined by the identifiable areas of work which are logical for the control of financial planning and scheduling. Examples include: separate buildings; floors of a building; or in a major engineering project, the separate major sections. Muli refers to phases as STAGES.

There is a danger in making the phases too discrete, in that it would be too difficult for employees to complete their time-sheets if they had to break up their working day into too many areas. For example, if a floor was divided into rooms, workers would be required to enter on their time-sheet how long they worked in each room.

Project phases would be related to the project scope management in so far as any increase in scope may well introduce additional phases. Likewise, construction issues in a particular phase, for example the concrete pour for the floor of a building, may result in an amendment or variation to the scope of works.

Outside the construction industry, the term “Project Management Phases” usually takes on the more generic meaning of initiate, plan, execute and evaluate.

Stages (Project Management Phases) are established when the Project is maintained. You can read more by selecting MODULES from the top menu and accessing PROJECT BUDGETS & VARIATIONS.
