|Introduction to Project Management
The PM Procedure
PROC PM is an interactive procedure that can be used for planning, controlling,
and monitoring a project. The syntax and the scheduling features of
PROC PM are virtually the same as those of PROC CPM; there are a few
differences, which are described in Chapter 6, "The PM Procedure."
As far as the
flow of data is concerned (see Figure 1.4), the PM procedure supports
an additional data set that can be used to save and restore preferences
that control the project view. The scheduling engine used by the PM procedure
is the same as the one used by PROC CPM; the same macro variable,
_ORCPM_, is used to indicate if the schedule was computed successfully.
