Abstract

For many businesses the common administration of projects in addition to their daily business constitutes a great challenge – a major obstacle seems to be that conventional project management tools and languages do not aim at an integration with standard ERP systems or frequently used business planning languages. This article presents Project-MEMO, a new modeling approach for an integrated planning, implementation and controlling of projects in businesses. The foundation of Project- MEMO is the augmentation of process description languages to enable an integrated modeling of projects. Project-MEMO unites languages to compile a multi-perspective image of a company - such as processes, the organizational structure of business units and projects, business goals, as well as resources. This article’s aim is the presentation of the Project- MEMO kernel: languages describing the dynamic and static structure, and the unifying language architecture. On top of the integrated administration of projects with standard enterprise planning, this article explores additional benefits derived for Multi-Project Management and Knowledge Management.
