The Project Management Window

The Project Management window enables you to input the following 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

Each of these four quantities has a separate tab in the window.

Notes:

  • Click on an element in the Project Browser to display project management information for that element in the Project Management window
  • The window has two formats:
  • List mode - provides a detailed list showing several columns of information
  • Item mode - a summary list plus an editor to add or edit information for a single selected item
  • Toggle between these modes using the Show/Hide Properties button in the window toolbar; each tab toggles between Item mode and List mode independently
  • An asterisk on a tab name indicates that the tab contains saved information; if there is no information for a category of item, or the information has not yet been saved, its tab has no asterisk
  • Right-click on the list to view the context menu, which enables you to add and delete list items
