development industry, project management plays a very crucial role, it is one
of the vital elements for success. “Project Managers are the most creative pros
in the world, they have to figure out everything that could go wrong before it
does”, this statement truly justify the importance of managers and
analyze closely, Software development can be split up into two broad areas, Software
creation and Software project management.
Software is said to be an intangible product. The effect of rapid change in
requirements, technology and methodologies bring certain amount of risk in
software project, so it is essential to manage software projects efficiently.
Time, cost and quality are the three important constraints
for software development projects. It is an essential part of software
organization to deliver quality product, keeping the cost within client budget
and deliver the product within deadlines. Therefore, software project
management is essential to incorporate to user requirements along with budget
and time constraints. All these constraints are handled by the project Managers.
These are the people who undertakes the responsibility of executing the
Managers are indirectly involve in producing the end product, they controls the
process and manages the activities involved in production. These people closely
monitors the development process, prepare and execute several plans, arrange
all necessary and adequate resources, maintains communication among all team
members in order to handle issues of cost, budget, resources, time, quality and
managers is involved in managing work force and act as a project leader. He is
involved in managing human resource, setting up report hierarchy and listen to
the concerns of stakeholder.
managers are also involved in defining and setting up project scope, managing
project management activities. They monitor progress and performance and
analyze risks at every phase. These people take necessary steps to avoid the
complexity and knows how to come out of these problems. They also act as a
essential activates involved in software development are also assigned to
project managers. They are responsible for Project planning, Scope management and
Project estimation. Scheduling of task and events, distribution of work
load among resources (resource management) are also involved with in the domain
of Project Mangers. They divide complex requirement into various smaller part
for the ease of management
estimations are must for an effective management. With correct estimation
manger can manage and control project more effectively and efficiently. Project
Estimations involves Software size estimations, Effort Estimations, Time
estimations and Cost Estimations. All these factors must be estimated and
maintained effectively by mangers.
Management in software development leads to project completion which leads to
faster implementation and faster returns on investment.
