Analysing Project Management Information Systems for Projects

Analysing Project Management Information Systems for Projects


A Project Management Information System (PMIS) is an automated or manual system used by a project team to gather, analyse, communicate, and store project information.


The PMIS collect information on the work that has and has not been accomplished in each work package and how that work result compares to the planned schedule, cost, quality and scope.

A Project Management Information System can utilize sophisticated software tools, either those purchase off-the-shelf or custom-built by an internal IT group, to manage some of its components.



There is some overlap between a communication plan and a PMIS, a PMIS has a calendar associated with it and includes a lot of communication between the project manager and the team.

Note : A common pitfall associated with using a PMIS is creating a system in which the various pieces of data are incompatible with one another. For example, financial data may be created on one application and reporting in a different application and there is no way to get these two systems to talk to each other.
