Sharing information in the system.

A project management information system is a system, usually a computer program, that helps to track parts of the project. The system is one of the enterprise environmental factors. While it can be useful in many of the project management processes, a project management information system is most valuable during the PMI processes of monitor and control project work and direct and manage project work (see sections and of the PMBOK, 5th edition). Project management information systems or tools range from simple lists to complex analytical techniques to large, integrated, enterprise computer programs. Many of the tools are associated with specific PMI processes by being identified as one of the tools and techniques of that process.

Project management information systems can automate tasks associated with the schedule, cost, key performance indicators, work authorization, communication, and configuration management.

Some common tools are

  • MS Excel
  • MS Project
  • CA PPM
