Advancements in technology enable today's project managers to more easily control and plan project schedules and project activities than in years past. This article explains how a project team working for General Electric Nuclear Service and Projects Division (NSPD) used a computer-based project management system to effectively integrate the project schedule for modifying a nuclear reactor's jet pump riser brace. In doing so, it describes why the team selected its project management system, noting its benefits in helping the project manager communicate critical information--about the project's progression and the project's cost performance--to the 40-member project team. It identifies the project's key challenges, explaining how the integrated schedule enabled the project team to address design problems before installation. It also overviews the impact of using the computer-based project management system.
