Software projects often fail, because they are not adequately managed. The establishment of effective and efficient project management practices still remains a key challenge to software organizations. Striving to address these needs, “best practice” models, such as, the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) or the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), are being developed to assist organizations in improving project management. In order to provide a low-cost tool support for project management, specifically, for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), we developed enhancements on open-source tool, dotProject, to be aligned with PMBOK and CMMI-DEV for time planning process/practices.
