||Re-engineering of the project planning processstrategic implementation of project management software
||This paper presents a model for re-engineering of the project planning process frombeing manually performed to be computer supported. The primary objective of thisstudy is to facilitate the implementation of project management software packages inorder to make use of the full potential of the software. Earlier studies show that thecurrent use of computer supported planning among project managers of buildingprojects is focused on print-out of schedules and the use of more advanced planningfunctions is limited. This study shows that only education and support is notsufficiently for project managers to adopt computer supported planning. Successfulimplementation of project management software also requires clear objectives of thecomputer supported planning and specified requirements and requisite level ofplanning details. This paper presents an approach on a strategic implementation ofcomputer supported project planning on basis of the surplus values related to the useof project management software. The results are based upon a case study at one ofSweden's largest construction companies.
