The project control cycle consists of measuring the status of the project, comparing to the plan, analysis of the deviations, and implementing any appropriate corrective actions. We present an analytical framework for determining the optimal timing of project control points throughout the life cycle of the project. Our approach is based on maximizing the amount of information generated by the control points, which depends on the intensity of the activities carried out since the last control… CONTINUE READING
