The use of a project management system in coordinating a hospital move operation

This study describes the use of a project management system by hospital administration in controlling, scheduling and assigning activities related to the preparation and implementation of the transition from an existing hospital to a newly constructed hospital of nearly equal size. The project being reported covers a span of several years and involved over a thousand tasks. The system being studied was developed by Professor Fred M. Feiler of UCLA and LOG/AN Inc. of Los Angeles, California. It is a relatively simple and inexpensive management system available to small organizations involved in projects of construction, expansion and development.
