A knowledge-based system for selecting project management microsoftware packages

Selecting appropriate project management, knowledge-based microsoftware can be a tedious, frustrating, time-consuming process.At present, there are over 200 project management software packages available.The Expert MS is a microcomputer knowledge-based system prototype that will aid project managers in the microsoftware selection process.The project management, hardware, user, and organization criteria all contribute to the selection process, which is outlined in a step by step process aimed at choosing the appropriate microsoftware for the project.The goal is to minimize the frustration, and aid in limiting the final choices through a series of decision systems.Once project managers have narrowed the selection, vendor negotiations can begin.The Expert-MS methodology was tested at the North Carolina State University with excellent results.
