Abstract

It is generally recognised that Project Management (PM) consists of three core interactive processes: planning, execution and controlling. Previous research has found that the gaps between these core processes, such as the vague interface between planning and execution, have prevented project management from being effective and efficient. In the practical way, the poor performance of project management can be seen as the result of information loss in the project. Product Life Cycle Support (PLCS), an emerging ISO standard (ISO 10303-239), addresses the through-life product information and provides a base to improve project management. On the other hand, project management has developed in ways that have not yet been incorporated into PLCS, providing potential to develop the standard. As a result of preliminary investigation, the combination of PLCS and project management will bring benefits to an integrated enterprise model.
