|Abstract: ||In project-based organizations having multiple projects with large team size,
human resources allocation and project monitoring become challenging.
In human resources allocation, there are wrong assignments and uneven
workloads on team members with manual task assignments requiring large effort.
It requires tremendous efforts in finding out which team members can do the
tasks well, especially with the large number of team members of different
projects under one’s supervision. The amount of efforts is multiplied in
rescheduling of tasks.
Projects are not monitored closely due to incorrect and out-dated timesheet data,
which may result in project delay. Timesheet data are not frequently updated due
to inconvenient user-interfaces. Monitoring is done by having regular and
frequent meetings, which is difficult to achieve in such a busy business world
Therefore, a web-based project management system is developed to provide
intelligent human resources allocation, updated information for project monitoring
and basic project management tools.
On human resources allocation, project managers can easily assign task to a
suitable team member by fitting task requirements on skills, man-days, position
and employment type. This minimizes the efforts in manual task assignments
and ensures that the task assignment is appropriate.
To assist automatic task assignment, this system makes adjustments on team
members’ skill levels according to their performances. This adjustment can bring
their skill levels closer to those in reality, as these levels are closely related to
This system can also minimize the efforts in rescheduling by considering the task
assignments to the ones who can finish the task with the earliest completion
dates. As a result, the skill levels are adjusted accordingly. This system provides
close project monitoring. Convenient interfaces are provided for gathering
updated timesheet data and task progress.|
