- The ancient Egyptians succeeded to establish an amazing civilization sustained for thousands of years and left human treasures still surviving to our present days. This included the construction of the Great pyramid of Khufu at Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This is the research paper number 88 in a series trying to explore the evolution of Mechanical Engineering in ancient Egypt. It discusses and presents how the ancient Egyptians managed the construction of the great pyramid with their available primitive tools. It presents how the ancient Egyptians could apply concepts related to project managements such as objectives, planning and design, construction, logistics, quality and documentation.
