Factories of the Future roadmap identifies that the major challenges manufacturing companies face today are the growing complexity of their processes, therefore affecting the overall process of decision making. Thus, it is a very important research area to integrate the evolving technologies in the domain of Internet of Things (IoT) into the applications used for project management. At the same time, to capture events on the shop-floor and determine the meaning of information about those perceived events would be an important aspect for making decisions in heterogeneous, highly dynamic environments. This research paper aims to provide a framework for efficient project management by reducing the time for decision-making based on IoT technologies. The goal is pursued by dynamically establishing situational awareness on the top of existing manufacturing processes. The proposed framework is validated in real industrial scenario by implementing a platform for efficient project management within the domain of construction industry.
