  • The importance of project performance management as an alternative for solving problems is rising, which are followed by the hardships of managing construction project in the construction industry. This research classifies and applies the improvements made by the operator's work, in order to apply factors of success on the construction project, as performance management factors. In addition, in order to predict the results reflecting the project characteristic of performance management factor un-improvable by the operator in the initial stage of construction, the effect of project characteristic to the performance was drawn by performance difficulty. Also, in order to improve the predicted performance, researches on setting valid best practices according to the performance territory through a correlation analysis between the best practices improvable through the operator's work, and the performance was made.

  • Although waste management in construction industry has a significant impact on both economical and environmental issues, the current level of waste management performance in Korean construction is reported as relatively low. In this context, this study aimed to suggest the considerations for the improved construction waste management guideline, which leads to the effective waste management on a construction site. In order to reach this goal, the existing domestic construction waste management guidelines were analyzed based on the criteria of the environmental management procedure of ISO 14001. These considerations were described in three aspects such as "planning", "implementation and operation", and "checking and corrective actions".

  • Construction management is essential for a achieving any pre-determined objective. It is however seen that in spite of construction management, majority of the project do not keep up their original time schedule and their completion cost is also higher as compared with the estimated cost The main reason for overrun in time and cost is that the planning at the outset of the project was not adequate or method of planning was not a refined one. In this research work, I showed the overall conditions of construction work and management in Sylhet city of Bangladesh and found many drawbacks in the construction management after completing my research. I found several factors affecting proper construction management and I have provided brief results. I have also provided some recommendations after my research work.

  • The aim of this study is to develop elements for assessing safety management capability of construction clients. To this end, it is investigated theoretical concepts of the organizational safety management and successful construction management factors of construction clients. From which, the elements appropriate to assess the safety management capability of the construction clients are proposed. Questionnaire survey targeting construction safety management experts have been carried out to adjust the proposed model more eligible for field application. Finally, relative importance of each element is analyzed using analytic hierarchy process method. The developed model elements are expected to use effectively for assessment of the safety management capability of the clients.

  • The construction supervisors of the public companies are usually responsible for process management, quality management, safety management, and many other various tasks that occur during construction project. Public companies such as Korea Highway Corporation have developed a framework and manual for management and supervision of construction projects. But, there has been the change of business environment such as increase of private investment project and the introduce of construction management system recently. It has been necessary for construction supervisor to streamline the current project management system in the owner's aspect in order to cope with the expected new challenges. Accordingly, this research has been investigated and analyzed the operation system between Korean supervisor and foreign supervisor in their public corporation. This research has suggested the advanced project management in their public corporation. Especially, this study has proposed the construction management manual for supervisors such as inspectors training, supervisors construction manual, and supervisors training road map.

  • In this paper, the systematic problems of safety management in domestic construction industry are presented by the investigation and analysis of construction fatal injuries. In particular, it is discussed that the current construction safety management system by contractors leading is ineffective to prevent the serious accidents caused by inappropriate planning and design and to circulate the safety management cycle without interruption. A couple of ways for improving domestic construction safety management system are suggested in broad perspective. This is done by the analysis of construction safety management system of four advanced industrial countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan and the study of a best practice. Total safety management system by owners leading is recommended to prevent construction accident effectively because this system makes all the parties join to the management system and distribute the responsibilities clearly to each party. This will drop the accident occurrence rate by dragging all the parties' cooperations and activating the total safety management system in an early stage.

  • MOCT(Ministry of Construction St Transportation) suggested "A Plan for Implementation of Knowledge-based Economy for the Construction Industry" to add high value to a construction industry. by means of knowledge-based management. However, there is no knowledge management system which considers characteristics of a domestic construction industry. So a useful knowledge vanished the moment a company terminated a construction Uoject. Therefore, it is necessary to develop "An application method of a knowledge management system for the construction industry" which takes a real environment into consideration. This study aims to present the road map of a knowledge management system which helps the bodies of the construction industry(government, research center/university, enterprise, etc) to do a knowledge activity efficiently. To accomplish this objective, we analyzed overall knowledge management activities. In addition we suggested an implementation direction and strategy of a knowledge management system for the construction industry. As results of this study, we presented the road map of a knowledge management system for the construction industry, which is composed of policy forum, study forum, professional forum, research forum and knowledge 8t information DB. We expect that results of this study will be used as a basis for implementing the knowledge portal that brings a construction industry to a high value added industry.
