Project Management System is a set of tools that will maintain an
organized project process. The system will not replace existing
project tools out there, hence the name; management, rather help
you keep the files they produce in a safe place. It will also make
communication easier, offering a chat client, bulletin board and
a calendar for all members.
The integrated tools in-depth ...
Working with projects requires cooperative
work and that is the idea behind the Group Calendar. Instead of
one calendar per member you can now keep one centralized calendar
for all members. Each member has the freedom to insert tasks/activities
that are relevant for him/herself or the whole group. Introducing
this way of using a calendar will keep every tasks/activities synchronized
at all times.
The system will also present these tasks in Today's Task on the
day they are set up on.
The chat meeting tool is not like other chat clients. Project Management
System introduces Internet Messaging Protocol (IMP) for sending
and retrieving messages on the net. The protocol follows a peer-to-peer
connection and logs the chat conversations. The idea behind this
tool is to make net meetings possible. The log can be used to help
you make a summary of a meeting.
Post ideas, opinions and discoveries on the integrated bulletin
board. You can also include images and links to other web sites
on your posts.
The Document Manager is an essential part of the system. This tool
will give you a sense of version control. Having a centralized storage
you and your group will have more flexible way to access your documents.
As part of the version control function, each downloaded document
from this tool is locked by the person who downloaded it. The storage
are visually shown as a hierarchical tree.
The Project Management System is developed with Java technology
and will work on operating systems that supports J2SE v1.4.2. Current
BETA release of this program has issues on Unix/Linux systems. Future
versions will resolve these problems.
Project Management System BETA 2 is available on the following links:
You can download the
program and use it indefinitely at no charge. You are also free
to distribute it to anyone you want, provided the distribution is
an unmodified version of what you downloaded from our or partners
