As projects become larger the complexity faced by engineers increases and the importance of successful project management techniques has never been greater. In most case(up to 75 percent of complex projects), the project with budgets greater than $500 million is considered as complex projects (Engineers Australia, 2014). Engineers Australia(2014) identified that the massive failure rates of complex projects are due to inadequate communication, critical skill and knowledge gaps, or poor conceptual planning as well as 'ineffective transfer of lessons learnt between similar projects'. All the factors are linked with the effective and efficient decision-making during planning faces of a complex project. The planning support
system can assist decision-makers to make decisions under uncertainty. The aim of this thesis is to provide a basis for beginning and experienced engineers exposure to complex
project management methods, and support systems that can be followed.
