PROMONT – A Project Management Ontology as a Reference for Virtual Project Organizations

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 4277)

Abstract

This paper introduces “PROMONT”, a project management ontology. PROMONT models project management specifications from a number of sources, most notably the upcoming DIN 69901 model for the exchange of project data. As a reference ontology it helps to build a common understanding of project related terms and methods thus facilitating the management of projects conducted in dynamic virtual environments. It is especially well suited for cross-enterprise project related business processes such as integration management, communication and controlling. A distributed project scenario is used to illustrate how a project plan is broken down for individual partners, and how activities are coordinated in a heterogeneous group.
