Description

Introducing Project Management Items

Project Management Items allow a modeler to define useful information about an element from the perspective of the management of the element. These include the Resources that can be allocated to work on the element, the Effort required to complete work on the element, Metrics that capture valuable information about a property of the element, and Risks associated with the element.

Where to find Project Management Items

Ribbon: Construct > Task Management > Resource Allocation

Ribbon: Construct > Change Management > Effort, Risks, Metrics

Element Browser: | Project Management | Resource Allocation, Effort, Risks, Metrics

Usage of Project Management Items

Project Management Items can be added to assist in the management of a project. Specifying the resources that can be allocated to work on a particular element will assist with ensuring the right resources can be scheduled to carry out the work. The Effort required will also help in specifying exactly what resources will be required. The Metrics can provide useful and structured information about properties of the element such as the cost and time estimations. Risks can be defined that will assist in the overall management of project risks.

Options for Project Management Items

Project Management Items can be applied to any element in the Repository including Packages which is useful if a manager wants to assign an item such as Resource Allocation to a number of elements such as a group of Non Functional Requirements.

There is a convenient toolbar that allows you to manage any of the Project Management Items with icons for New (Item), Save, Delete, Sort and more.
