Project Management Using Graphics

Conference paper


This paper addresses the problem of lack of visualization most managers face when using computer-based project control systems: although highly relevant information is generated, usually no graphical output is produced. This paper presents a system called UniPert that automatically produces high quality drawings showing all activities present in a project and the relationship among them. A detailed description of UniPert’s major components and algorithms is presented as well as examples of its actual use. The main contribution of this paper is the integration of many different techniques and concepts that led to the development of the UniPert system.
