Project monitoring and control is the process of collecting, recording, and reporting information concerning project performance. Project controlling uses the data from monitor activity to bring actual performance to planned performance. The present study deals with the project monitoring process of “Standard Design Factory”, a four storeyed (G+3) factory building whose construction is in progress at Cochin, Kerala. A comparison between the planned progress of construction work and actual progress is performed in this study using project management software Primavera P6. Despite well-established principles and policies of project monitoring the process itself may not be efficiently accomplished in a project, because of those practical problems existing or arising in the projectSuch an attempt in realizing the practical problems in implementation of project monitoring and control will contribute to proper recognition of the problem areas and putting in place the control process to rectify the deviations.
