Project Phase Dependent Configuration of Project Management Information Systems

Solvita Berzisa, Janis Grabis


Project management information systems ensure the collection and display of project information. The project information changes depend upon the project environment. According to project environment and requirements, the configuration of project management information system is ensured by means of an approach to configuration of project management information systems. However, topicality of information and access to it change during the project life cycle depending upon the user’s role and the project phase. The objective of this paper is to adapt the approach to configuration of project management information systems for definition of requirements that depend upon the user’s role and project phase. The adapted configuration approach could ensure storing of this requirement and the reconfiguration transformation during the project life cycle.
