Abstract : The project management experiments exercise the environment from the perspective of the project manager. The activities of concern here are those related to allocating resources to the project, specifying group and individual tasks, tracking progress, evaluating the quality of the project and (to a limited extent) administrative support functions. The technical management experiments concentrate on management of the project database. The experiments examine the database with respect to organization, access, and management, not as an entity for the creation and maintenance of specific software modules and systems. In other words, the technical management experiments are intended to ask questions of interest to a typical manager, not those of interest to members of the technical staff (e.g., programmers, documentation specialists, etc.).
