Project management software

Project management software has the capacity to help plan, organize, and manage resource tools and develop resource estimates. Depending on the sophistication of the software, it can manage estimation and planning, scheduling, cost control and budget management, resource allocation, collaboration software, communication, decision-making, quality management and documentation or administration systems. Today, numerous PC & browser based project management software and contract management software solutions exist, and are finding applications in almost every type of business.

The origins of project management software are rooted in the 1950s when Dupont Chemical collaborated with mainframe computer maker Remington Rand (Univac) to devise the Critical Path Method of network scheduling (CPM). This method was tested in 1958 with the construction of a major new chemical plant. In parallel, the US Navy working together with Lockheed Aerospace devised the automated Project Evaluation Review Technique (PERT) for the Polaris Missile program that ran on the IBM mainframe. Mainframe and Mini computers dominated the project management software arena until the early 1980s when PC computers began to proliferate across business and government circles alike.
