Critical Path Method (CPM) is a well known scheduling method and it is currently a necessary tool in middle and big construction projects in Malaysia. This study investigates the utilization of CPM software among Malaysian contractors and its relations toward their perception of project performance. 110 questionnaires were distributed among contractors as participants of Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) training programs within two weeks of time frame and the data analyzed. The result shows that Malaysian contractors have yet to fully adopt the CPM software in their work. Most of them (49.1%) use the CPM software for planning, scheduling and monitoring activities but they still did not highly use the software especially its resource features for their project. However, 77.3% of the contractors’ perceived that the use of CPM software helps to increase their projects’ performance.
