Counter Since the second edition of Project Planning & Control in 1991, major changes have taken place in the way managers approach the problems of planning and control of engineering and industrial projects.


This Third Edition of Project Planning and Control describes the latest project management systems that use critical path methods. A detailed examination of one widely used system illustrates the general characteristics of modern project planning software. Descriptions of Microsoft Project and the Hornet Project Management System are also featured, as well as a discussion of the importance of integrating Network Analysis with Earned Value Analysis (EVA), giving real life examples.
