Project Management Windows

The Project Management windows help you to define these quantities associated with an element contained in the model:

  • Resources - the people who work on a project, who can be assigned roles and allocated tasks
  • Effort - effort expended in work on the element
  • Risks - risk associated with the element
  • Metrics - metrics measured for an element

A separate window displays for each of the four quantities.
