A Project Management Information System with Key Performance Indicators in a Multi-Project environment - An action research with IKEA AB

Jakobsson, Johan, Fosse, Nora January 2014 (has links)
Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to describe how IKEA AB, works with projects today. Further, the aim is to give a suggestion on how a Project Management Information System could look like in the multi-project organization IKEA AB. In order to control and monitor, this study also includes performance measurements, in the form of KPIs, into the Project Management Information System.   Background: In today’s business life many companies are a multi-project organization with several ongoing projects at the same time. By using a Project Management Information System organizations are able to monitor, control and support projects. IKEA AB described having a set project methodology, but that project managers often work in their own way, and that this lead to a problem with monitoring and supporting project.   Methodology: The methodological approach in the study is action research. The contacts and interviews were conducted thru a semi-structured approach with people related to projects in different ways, project managers and management board members.   Findings: The findings of the study are that projects at IKEA AB are not conducted in a cohesive way. The suggestion for a Project Management Information System at IKEA AB containing of several parts; the system need to include a project plan, KPIs to monitor cost, time and resources, and project members feelings needed to be monitored during execution. The information also needed to be presented in two separate dashboards to deliver the right information to the right person.

Tseng, Chien-Chung 18 August 2004 (has links)
This research discusses the project management using the Cooperation Information System Framework in accordance to the distributed environment demand, as well as the information technology application, in human cooperative work practice, the project team organizes, as well as the project information system three between reciprocity; And, the union Collaborative Project Management Architecture, develops this research subject Integrated Collaborative Project Management Information System, and the definition is " A large-scale, modularity, integrated process guidance system, conformity project management information flow and so on process plan, execution, control, take coordinates the cooperation as a foundation, emphatically the team member's communication coordination ability, with the project information management, provides the project decision-making information, the promotion project carries out the achievements and the quick reaction capability." . Integrated collaborative project management information system, emphatically in the emphasis project process management, the project member coordinates the cooperation the communication mechanism, as well as the project information database uses again, and does take the component integrated concept as the system framework foundation, may do for the new generation of project management system software development basis. In addition, this research takes the project-driven as the enterprise mainly operates basal engineering company for apply object, with the Integrated Collaborative Project Management System Architecture, be used as the nucleus that the engineering company enterprise applies the structure, and according to configure with the layout engineering project management system, and describe its system establishment process.

Comparison of module usage of project management information system and success rate of construction projects: case study

Sweet, Coretta A. 09 April 2009 (has links)
If construction is about delivering a built asset that is of high quality and efficiency, wouldn t most companies use all the tools and processes available at the highest organizational level possible? A major assumption is made that Prolog Manager is an effective Project Management Information System. Saying Company X will benefit from more module use with Prolog Manager system is not the same as saying they will suffer from lack of module usage. If a company has already attained success using manual systems it successes may continue. To be as successful as possible, maximum utilization of all modules of Prolog Manager at the unique project type organizational level is necessary, and correlations can be made between higher module usage and greater project successes with this type of company size and structure.

Processo de seleção de Sistemas de Informação do Gerenciamento de Projetos (SIGP): um estudo multicaso / The Selection Process of Information Systems Project Management (PMIS): a multi case study

Alexandre Na\'Lamba 08 November 2012 (has links)
Os Sistemas de Informação do Gerenciamento de Projetos (SIGP) tem se destacado no ambiente de Gerenciamento de Projetos por suas vantagens e benefícios. Apesar de não ser suficiente para garantir o sucesso do projeto, fornece aos gerentes de projetos o apoio na aplicação das técnicas de planejamento, controle das atividades e suporte na tomada de decisão. Os SIGP não impõem limites às empresas, pelo contrário, criam alternativas de modo que o desafio passa a ser a escolha adequada que é oposta à escolha correta da solução tecnológica. Quando uma solução tecnológica é adequada, supõe-se que ela tem alguma utilidade real para a empresa. Este trabalho tem como objetivo estudar empiricamente como as empresas selecionam os SIGP por meio de estudo multicaso, utilizando-se de pesquisa qualitativa, de caráter descritivo e exploratório. O estudo envolveu três empresas com mais de 10 anos de experiência em GP, as informações foram coletados por meio das entrevistas e questionários. Os resultados do estudo mostram que a lógica da seleção de SIGP proposta pela literatura diverge com as práticas das empresas estudadas e estes entre elas. Uma das explicações das divergências entre as empresas, tanto no processo de seleção como no uso dos SIGP encontra-se no grau de maturidade da empresa, características do projeto e necessidade dos usuários. A filosofia de seleção do SIGP nas empresas com maior nível de maturidade é mais de prevenção do problema, já nas empresas com baixa maturidade é mais focado nos sintomas de problema (funcionalidades). Empresa com maior grau maturidade usa SIGP high-end e empresas com baixa maturidade usam SIGP low-end. No entanto, o grau da importância do SIGP é menor nas empresas com maior nível de maturidade. O nível da maturidade e a complexidade dos projetos influenciam a forma como é feita a seleção de SIGP e o uso das funcionalidades de SIGP é limitado em função das necessidades da empresa. / Project Management Information Systems (PMIS) has been highlighted in project management environment for its advantages and benefits. While not enough to ensure success of the project, provide project managers with decision making support for planning, control activities, applying techniques and decision making. The PMIS do not impose limits on companies. By contrast, create alternatives so the challenge becomes the right choice, as opposed to choosing the correct technology solution. When a technological solution is appropriate, it is assumed that it has any real use for the company. This paper aims to examine empirically how companies select the PMIS through multicase study, using qualitative research, descriptive and exploratory. The study involved three companies with over 10 years experience in Project Management, information was collected through interviews and questionnaires. The study results show that the logic of selection of PMIS proposed by literature differs with the practices of the companies studied and these between them. One explanation of the differences between the companies, both in the selection process as the use of PMIS is the maturity of the company, project characteristics and needs of users. Philosophy selection of PMIS in companies with higher maturity level is more than preventing the problem, since the companies with low maturity is more focused on symptoms of problem (features). Company with high maturity uses high-end PMIS and low maturity companies use low-end PMIS. However, the degree of importance of PMIS is shorter in businesses with a high level of maturity. The level of maturity and complexity of projects influence how the selection of PMIS is made and use the features of PMIS is limited depending on the needs of the company.
