Project management system for large infrastructure projects.

The paper describes the basis of a project management system designed to enhance project management capabilities of the project’s Owner

I wish to share this paper I published on PM World Journal. I will present it shortly at Project Controls Expo Virtual on November 2020.


The paper 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 Billions (circa) of Euros regarding an infrastructure programme. The author 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)”.

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 author of this paper was the project manager of the project management consultancy group; he also designed CAPITOLO, the software package used for the implementation of the project controls system, based on EVM methodology.

The paper 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.

I am a chartered civil engineer and certified CCP (cost engineering and total cost management) at AACE International, with thirty years of experience in project management of the construction sector. I deliver expert planning, programme management and project controls on multibillions-Euro infrastructure programmes, including highways and railways, metro, air terminals and complex buildings (commercial, residential, schools), with some experience in oil & gas and power. I worked in advanced contexts of project management (from matrix organizations of EPC contractors to large employers organized to manage complex capital projects), by undertaking various roles in the field of project management / controls and contract management; this diverse range of experiences allowed me to gain knowledge on the various components of project controls (schedule, cost estimating, budgeting and cost control, progress and performance measurement, risk and claim management). I am an Italian citizen, currently in Italy.
