|Introduction to Project Management
Project Management Systems
As illustrated in the "Data Flow" and "Examples" sections,
the procedures of SAS/OR software,
when combined with the other parts of
the SAS System, provide a rich environment
for developing customized project management systems. Every company
has its own set of requirements for how project data should be handled
and for how costs should be accounted. The CPM,
GANTT, NETDRAW, and PM procedures, together with
the other reporting, summarizing, charting, and plotting
procedures, are the basic building blocks that can be combined
in several different ways to provide the exact structure that you
need. The interactive PM procedure can be used as the primary editing interface
for entering all activity information for your projects.
Further, the application building tools in the SAS System
can be used to cement the pieces together in a menu-driven application.
You can create easy-to-use applications
enabling the user to enter information continually
and to obtain progress reports periodically.
