The evaluation of construction project management is rarely approached with a systematic strategy that is based on clearly defined criteria, historical databanks and standardised techniques. This paper presents an evaluation system that facilitates more realistic assessments, by using relevant criteria, appropriate indicators, suitable tools and a knowledge-based front-end that helps select and integrate the necessary modules from a comprehensive system. The resulting project specific evaluation instruments are shown to be more efficient in the effective assessment of construction projects and their management.
