ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT AND PROJECT TRIANGLE

In engineering management, the project triangle refers to the relationship of cost, efficiency, and accuracy. The importance of the project triangle is paramount when owner and architect/engineer relationships are carried out long distance. This article identifies problems that can occur when one or both parties lack appropriate communication skills. It discusses the strain on professionalism when the inexperienced engineering manager or consultant is unfamiliar with the remote site. Both parties, early on, must establish a trusting relationship in which each recognizes and appreciates the experience of the other party. City planners and other experts managing infrastructure projects for the city of Unalaska, Alaska, is one example of this type of project relationship, which the author examines.
