Best Practices: Key Project Management Process Improvements Enabled by PTC Capabilities

Project Management: Best Practices
  • Project plan scheduling and execution: Plan to the appropriate level of schedule detail necessary to ensure key deliverables and milestones are met while reducing unnecessary tracking and reporting overhead.
  • Work tracking and progress monitoring: Ensure activity owners and assigned resources provide the appropriate level of work and status reporting so project managers can effectively track and monitor progress against the schedule without any unnecessary overhead.
  • Project resource cost management: Capture the necessary data about activity effort and project costs to enable project managers to effectively track project spend to budget.
  • Resource utilization monitoring: Track and monitor the utilization of project resources to identify resource overloads and bottlenecks.
  • Software project monitoring and control: Support ongoing, real-time monitoring of progress of software development projects so as to support the successful release of software deliverables.
  • Software release readiness monitoring: Improve the predictability of software releases by providing metrics and status summaries on the functional completeness of software artifacts, the quality of those artifacts and outstanding issues.
  • Agile software release planning: Support iterative and incremental updating of software plans and pull-based scheduling from a prioritized queue of work items.
  • Risk and issue management: Systematically capture issues and risks. Continually assess impact and probability to transparently communicate and make risk-informed program decisions.
