Primavera Software and the Project Management Lifecycle

Primavera software

Project Management in Primavera software is the planning, organizing, securing, and managing of the resources needed to complete a project on time and within budget. The main purpose of project management is to achieve all of the project goals while taking in to account the constraints of the project. Typical constraints associated with a project are time, scope, and budget. The secondary goal of project management is to streamline the project management process ensuring that resources are allocated correctly and all the processes are streamlined to make sure the project is completed on time and within the budget.

The 5 Phases of the Project Management Lifecycle

The phases associated with project management fall into five categories including:

  1. initiation
  2. planning
  3. execution
  4. controlling
  5. closing

Phase 1: Initiation

The initiation phase of the project management lifecycle involves the initial start up processes of a project. This phase is where the project’s scope and purpose are defined, justified, and implemented.

In this phase:

  1. team members and managers are appointed
  2. the feasibility of the project is studied
  3. documentation is collected
  4. the project office is set up

Primavera software helps streamline the initiation phase by offering the ability to store documents, configure the project team member’s access, and provide an overall phase review before the planning phase begins.
