    Abstract

    Since the development of the PERT/CPM method in 1958, many planning and controlling tools have been developed; however, no method has exceeded the PERT/CPM to make an epoch-making impact on the methodology for planning and controlling at a construction site. The advanced technologies are strongly expected to serve as platforms for the development of new planning and controlling tools. 3D-CAD, Virtual Reality and RFID technologies with conventional photography technology are expected to be key technologies to change the way of planning and controlling. This paper discusses the significance of these four technologies in construction management. Through the case studies carried out at Waseda University, the author pursues the feasibility of new tools for construction management.
