Beyond automated scheduling packages

This article describes some of the latest on-line ways to access and utilize project management (PM) information. Some organizations have put their Project Management Methodologies (PMM) on-line, enabling them to be easily accessed and maintained. At Allstate Insurance Company, all standards and guidelines must be available on-line, and at Corning's Corporate Information Group, the company's PMM and Systems Development Life Cycle were put on a local area network. On-line project toolkits are comprised of PMM-prescribed input and output form templates, simplifying data entry and facilitating project documentation. Visa International and the California State Automobile Associated developed their own on-line project toolkits. Coming advances in automation support to build more interactive and efficient project information bases will challenge the PM community.
