Many project suffers time and cost overruns due to improper planning, scheduling and execution works that results in several issues like delay in providing facilities, development, reduction in quality of construction and making the project more expensive. A little consideration shows that the time required to complete the project is inversely proportional to the supply of manpower. As the manpower is increased, the completion time of the project is decreased and on the other hand if the manpower is decreased, the completion time of the project is increased. The present study deals with the manpower planning, scheduling and tracking of “Construction of a Residential Block at Mahadev Parisar, Bhopal”, a six storied (G+6) building project whose construction is in progress at Shivaji Nagar, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. A comparison between the baseline duration and cost to actual duration and cost of manpower of project is also determined using project management software tool Microsoft Project 2013.
