PROJECT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (PMS) THROUGH THE USE OF THE CRITICAL PATH METHOD (CPM)

THIS PROGRAM IS AT PRESENT BEING UPDATED TO INCLUDE MULTIPROJECT SCHEDULING. WHEN THIS PROCESS IS COMPLETED (IN ABOUT 6 MONTHS), THE UPDATED PROGRAM WILL BE SENT TO NTIS FOR DISTRIBUTION. THE NEW PROGRAM WILL SUPERSEDE BOTH THE PRESENT PUBLICATION AND "BPR PROGRAM NO. A-4, CRITICAL PATH METHOD," NOW LISTED BY NTIS AS PB 168740. THE LATTER WILL BE WITHDRAWN WHEN THE UPDATED PROGRAM IS DISTRIBUTED BY NTIS. THE PROGRAM IN THIS REPORT IS AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE PRESENT "BPR PROGRAM NO.A-4, CRITICAL PATH METHOD." PROJECT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (PMS) PROVIDES SCHEDULING, COST AND RESOURCE CONTROL, AND INFORMATION HANDLING CONVENIENCE; BUT IT DOES NOT DESIGN A NETWORK, OR PLAN OUT A PROJECT. PMS FUNCTIONS AS A HANDLER, COMPUTER SELECTOR, AND DISPLAYER OF INFORMATION WHICH WILL INCREASE THE ABILITIES OF THE PROJECT PLANNER. THIS REPORT INCLUDES AN INTRODUCTION TO PMS THROUGH CPM, CPM PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION, USER INSTRUCTIONS, AND SOURCE PROGRAM LISTING.
