Computer Integrated Work Management (CIW)

  • Gerhard Chroust
Conference paper


Software project management is often hampered by a lack of complete and upto-date information on planned and actual activities, on their actual status, etc. At the same time software engineering environments have gained widespread acceptance and use within the last decade, providing guidance for the development process and integrating access to tools. They can provide most of the information needed for project management. An attainable vision of the future is the integration of classical project management with process guidance in order to arrive at Computer Integrated Work Management (CIW).

Advantages are an effective communication between process guidance and project management and the ability to hide the added complexity from the user by adequate filtering on a need-to-know basis.
