This research focuses on the matrix-based approach to manage the changes occurred in a construction project. The difficulty of managing the changes in a project can be attributed to the complex interdependency among different entities in a project. Then, when changes take place in a project, they can intractably propagate to other parts of the project, leading to some undesirable impact such as long duration delay and over budget. In our approach of change management, we focus on three aspects: (1) modelling of systems’ dependency, (2) characterization of change options, and (3) estimation of change impact.
