The objective of this study is to improve the liquefied natural gas station construction project to achieve on-time delivery. Diverse tools and techniques are integrated to make various interrelated activities in the project occur effectively as planned with less cost, suggested by the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) guideline and the Project Management Information System (PMIS). To implement the PMIS along with the PMBOK, the project management software and Internet of Things (IoT) are utilized for real-time long-distance monitoring and control of the project. The proposed approach is implemented at a real demonstration project. The results reveal that the proposed approach is quite effective, which help increase the number of projects completed on schedule from 75% in the last year to 100% this year. Moreover, the implementation of the PMIS also results in substantial reductions in the employment allowance for routine site inspections and the travel expense for round-trip vehicles travelling from the company to the site.
