Hi,

can you please elaborate what you mean by "project engine".

Thanks,

We use mostly TeamHeadquarters from Entry and, of course, Microsoft Project.

I thought the same as Markus but will base my answer assuming speaking of the tools used.

I use MS Project/Visio/Office Suite, SharePoint, Jira, Mindjet, Jive

Hi Markus and Andrew,

Project Engine is the visual representation of the project status where the project team updates the status of their activity for current week and next week via standup meetings.

Thanks,
Pavi

In that case, SharePoint and PPT. Have also done a POC with MS BI.

This is not something used in the PMBOK. Where did this "project engine" come from Pavithra?

Sharepoint site would just as well solve the purpose without requiring additional specialized tools

Agree with Deepesh. When you have team members coming from the line organisation and they are basically used to MS-Office products, SharePoint is from my point of view the smartest "engine" to push the needed collaboration and transparency, as it is highly integrated with MS-Office Products. In case you go for SharePoint, I recommend you to study and use the "SharePoint List" functionality that allows you to configure specific tables and views for your project. A good combination with SharePoint is to have it integrated with MS Project Server.

Agreed.I have have used a similar environment a number of times and it works., The key is keeping things simple enough there is not a long learning curve, and comprehensive enough that it does the job for you, especially if you have a distributed team.

Since she is talking about "StandUp Meetings" i do assume this is coming from the agile world?!
I do not have much expereince with agile in pm, but we do use more or less the same "engines" like others mentioned here ...MS Project, PPT and also Sharepoint. Ihave also worke dwith JIRA and MindManager to provide project status in the past.

I guess in a broader sense 2project enigen" could also be seen like the "PMIS" (which is mentioned in the Guide); what do you guys think?

I believe it is indirectly mentioned as PMIS in PMBOK. As I have experienced in reality, documents names are not directly mentioned in PMBOK. But it shows a generic term what it has to be called.

Yes, Markus. I agree, PMIS is the right PMBOK reference link.
