Use of project management information system (PMIS)

Use of project management information system (PMIS)

Introduction

It is widely known that, timely and relevant information is essential to the
decision-making process of a project and that relying on an inadequate information system puts a project at risk. This information is a valuable resource for project managers. Despite this knowledge, project managers often fail to deliver the types of information needed to ensure project success. Implementing a project management information system (PMIS) is one way to address critical project information needs. To ensure coherence in execution of projects, the adoption of project management information system (PMIS) is one of the best ways of addressing critical project information needs[1]. It is also important to note that, project management information system (PMIS) is used in comparing the baseline with actual accomplishment of each project phase, as well as managing materials and collecting financial data[2]. This paper discusses the characteristics, components, and the usefulness of project management information system (PMIS).
