A New Way for Physical Progress Monitoring in High Tech Infrastructure Construction

This paper presents the project of designing an agile physical progress measurement system for the construction management department of a multinational company operating in turnkey railway projects field. It has been pointed out that the classical physical progress measurement, based on Earn Value Management (EVM) and so financially based, is not suitable for modern high-tech and, in one word, complex, construction projects. So it has looked for something different, more agile, to easily fix the problem of monitoring on a weekly basis the physical progress of sites. The work starts by describing the process of choosing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), defines an overall physical progress index, then discusses the choice of a baseline to measure against, and at the end it illustrates the visual management implemented.
