Although not required, software tools can help to implement a project management process in practice. In order to provide comprehensive, low-cost tool support for project management, specifically, for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), we are evolving the free open-source tool dotProject in alignment with the PMBOK and CMMI-DEV (PP and PMC).
And, in order to support the teaching of project management tools, we also enhanced dotProject+ by re-organizing its functionality in alignment with the PM process, facilitating the tool usage during the PM process execution. Instructional features also include a feedback mechanism, providing comments and suggestions on the project plans being developed, such as inconistencies or omissions in relation with PM theory.
