Project Management Software: Practical Applications for Improved Project Management

Project management software is designed to make the job of a project manager easier and more efficient, providing applications to aid in planning, to manage project costs, and to track activities and monitor schedules. As more and more public works departments face the realities of increasing workloads and shrinking resources, finding technology applications that allow productivity gains becomes ever more important. The use of project management software as a tool for managing and organizing work has grown and continues to grow at a rapid pace in all industries. This paper reviews the ways in which it is currently being used in the course of transportation project delivery in Minnesota, and provides a tool to assist in choosing the right application to meet a local city or county’s needs.
