The overall aim of this study is to investigate the theories, methodologies, related important technologies and their applications in advanced project management.In the introducing part, Firstly, it states the limitations of the traditional theories, methods and related technologies in project management, and then it describes the background of advanced project management and the significance of doing research on the theories and methodologies of advanced project management. Finally, it illustrates the present situation of the management of shipbuilding engineering projects and the applicability of advanced project management to the shipbuilding projects.The study is an in-depth discussion to the crucial technology - Planning Evaluation and Review Technology (PERT) in project management. It is the first presentation of new calculation method - Grey-PERT by applying Grey Forecasting, Grey Evaluation, and Grey Nesting from the theory of Grey System into PERT. The method not only solves the problem of how to calculate the re-do duration in project processing or scheduling, but also increases the accuracy and applicability of scheduling and planning in a project. The calculating procedure, efficiency and advantages of this Grey-PERT are examined in details by giving an example in shipbuilding project planning.Based on the traditional theory and methods in project management, the study is the first one to bring forward a new theoretical framework in project management (PM)-- Advanced Project Management Body of Knowledge (APMBOK). It has integrated the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Business Process Reengineering (BPR), Electronic Commerce (EC), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) in the APMBOK. The new method may strengthen significantly the traditional project management in the process of modernization in the era of new information and technologies.In the theoretical framework of APMBOK, for the first one, the study pointed out that Contractor Relationship Management is a complement to the traditional model of project management. Also, Contractor Relationship Management is the important component of Associate Relationship Management, and Project Outsourcing is the most important business operational form among those enterprises that are making flexible engineering models in the 21st century. After the in-depth discussion on the function, characteristics, and key technologies of Contractor Relationship Management, the study presents a practical example on how to manage an outsourcing software project.In the application of APMBOK to shipbuilding engineering, still it is the first one of the kind of study in China to bring forward systematically the APMBOK theory to the field of the shipbuilding engineering projects. System Model of Advanced Shipbuilding Project Management is firstly presented, which includes practical principle, system structure frame, function model and some key technologies - Agile Ship Project Group, Integration between PM and ERP, the Whole Ship Planning Management and its Information System, and Agile Ship Supply Chain Management. At Last, the study sets up a system of the evaluation and selections contractor for ship projects Supply Chain, which improves the scientific method and process of ship product contractor selection.
