TOWARDS MODELING LARGE SCALE PROJECT EXECUTION MONITORING - Project Status Model

Ciprian-Leontin Stanciu, Dacian Tudor, Vladimir-Ioan Creţu

Abstract

Software projects are problematic considering their high overruns in terms of execution time and budget. In large scale projects, the monitoring activity is a very difficult task, due to the very complex relation between resources and constraints, and must be based on a well established methodology. The outputs of the monitoring process refer mostly to the current status of the project, which must be reflected as accurate as possible. We propose a model for project status determination. This is a sub-model of a future monitoring model subject of our current research. The project status model not only considers the perspective of the project manager, which defines the macro-universe of the project, but also the perspective of every worker involved in the project, who can be seen as manager of their assigned tasks, which defines the micro-universe of the worker.
