Imaging for project managers
technology conveys knowledge
This article overviews the new imaging technologies that can assist project managers in the efficient management and distribution of project information. Networked printing that uses high-volume printers is an efficient technology when time is critical. The task of updating a constantly changing documentation set is eased through the use of such technologies as high-volume scanning, on-demand printing, and digital photography. Advances in compact disc technology allow huge amount of data to be preserved on CDs, an appropriate media for storing of documentation for large projects and increasingly accessible by other technologies. Given the advances in imaging technologies, it is foreseeable that before long, project managers will actually be using images to model their processes.
