Abstract

The current Software Project Management Application used by Longbridge Consulting Sdn Bhd is based on the use of excel worksheets. As a Small Medium Enterprise (SME), Longbridge Consulting Sdn Bhd is unable to utilize commercial project management solutions to the simple fact that these software’s are costly, complicated and cumbersome to implement for their software development projects. Common issues faced by the project manager are difficulties in keeping track of project details such as project status, tasks, milestones and also the important task of report generation. These issues are in no way unique and limited to just Longbridge Consulting Sdn Bhd as there are yet many organizations today that are also facing these exact same problems. This research presents a prototype Web-based Software Project Management Application (SPMA), which is developed on the Oracle Apex. Apex is a browser-based web development tool that enables the rapid development of database-centric web applications. The goal of creating the web-based Software Project Management Application (SPMA) will be to provide an alternative solution that will be able to cater to the above-mentioned problems while at the same time ensuring the project quality is not sacrificed. Web-based Software Project Management Application (SPMA) caters to several components of project management such as the managing of multiple projects along with their associates, releases, tasks, milestones and features, tracking and the overall monitoring of a project’s progress. Actions like generating reports can be done on the fly whilst allowing real-time actions of creating, updating and viewing of project details all of which can be done via online. The implementation of this application was then measured by in terms of system data accuracy and system response time. During evaluation the result showed that system data accuracy and system response of this tool is almost 50% better and faster than excel based work sheets system.
