Recent advancements in project controls have made these vital tools even more valuable for transportation infrastructure owners who want to keep projects on schedule and on budget. Modern project controls tools offer project stakeholders a comprehensive and current understanding of project progress, improved data-informed decisions and the ability to better anticipate and mitigate risks.

HDR’s latest Experts Talk interview features Principal Program Manager Miloš Vasiljević, who possesses extensive hands-on experience in applying project controls tools to major transportation programs. He shares how these tools have evolved in recent years, explains their role in enabling owners to be more proactive on their projects, and describes how integrations with other disciplines are creating exciting possibilities.

“The evolution of project controls and the new tools being used have allowed analysts to pivot and shift the focus from mostly recording past events to actively analyzing data to predict and influence a project's future trajectory,” Vasiljević said. “In essence, advanced project controls empower infrastructure owners to proactively plan and make data-driven decisions, leading to more efficient, cost-effective and successful projects.”
