1. GENERAL INTRODUCTION
Construction industry is essentially a service industry, construction activity involves
converting the specified plan prepared by an engineer or architect into a finished project. Success
in the construction industry depends largely on the ability of the management to plan and coordinate the numerous steps involved in the project execution. Since every project is different,
the problems faced are also different. The problems faced are also different. In construction
business even one problem may prove costly as the concerned personnel may never have
encountered it before.
Hence internal planning must be treated seriously and efforts should be taken to
anticipate problems before construction of the project begins. The construction industry demands
a high level of management of human resources and material for successful completion of the
project. This can be better understood with practical experience because every project passes
through certain problems that can be solved by proper and timely utilization of resources and
skill by a site engineer.
