Through the literature review that highlights the basic needs for the system, in which two objectives were identified are: to investigate the problems faced by executive management using an information system for monitoring construction progress, and to investigate the traditional and computerized methods of monitoring construction progress in the construction industry. The data gathered from 56 respondent using questionnaires were obtained via post-mailing and face to face interview. The “High Research Power” (HRP) analysis and Average Index Method were used to analyze the data. In conclusion, the finding highlighted several problems which include ‘Ineffective communication’ faced by executive management for monitoring work progress.
