Abstract:
A computerized project management system (CPMS) was developed in 1980s during construction of the King Saud University campus, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The CPMS was built around the critical path method algorithm. The significance of the CPMS was to provide a realistic management tool for handling an enormous number of detailed activities over the nearly 10 years required to execute the project.
