T. Norio, H. Tanaka, S. Bushuyev


Engineering and construction projects, also called EPC projects, formed a pioneering application area of project management, and are characterized by such features as absolutely larger financial sizes of the projects under investment; high complexity and global nature of operations; required high accuracy of contractual delivery on time and budget demanded by the maturity of the industry; and high dependency on robust information and communication technology (ICT) on a global scale. An ICT platform for a company dedicated to operating in the EPC projects requires a unique combination of tailor-made, robust ICT systems and industry de-facto project management software, and must support both, project planning and execution, and project controls and management. This paper benchmarks characteristics and the typical structure of a the project-related ICT platform of Japan’s super engineering and construction company in which 2 authors have working experience of 40+ years.
