What Is a Project Management Information System (PMIS)?
By Moises Ortiz
The Project Management Information System (PMIS) refers to a system made up of technologies, procedures and people to handle cost, schedule planning, reporting, forecasting, and control of most aspects of the project. While the PMIS usually consists primarily of software, it will often interface with manual systems.
Information is a valuable resource for project managers and not having such information well organized and available could lead to a failure on the project’s success. Implementing a PMIS is one way to address critical project information needs.
A PMIS will contain the configuration management system, which also contains the change control system.
