The construction industry which provide large-scale employment is the foundation of development for emerging countries like India. The productivity of the construction industry depends largely on resource management methods. Also, it is very difficult to prepare accurate and achievable plans in large construction projects. As the complexity of the project increases and the cost of the project surges, companies must effectively manage their budgets and schedules. For construction project monitoring and control Primavera P6 turns out to be an effective tool because the time to upgrade is significantly reduced. This paper aims to provide a review on application of Primavera software in time and resource management of construction project. The study finds how Primavera P6 software solves various complexities associated with planning, scheduling, controlling, monitoring and tracking of construction projects based on detailed literature survey..
