GPM®: An Objectbase Project Networking Method
Authored by: Gui Ponce de Leon
CPM (Critical Path Method) applications anchored on database-driven scheduling engines controlled via keyboard and mouse have been the dominant paradigm in project management. Database-driven modeling of what is arguably a graphical application is akin to CAD – on life support until 3D Modeling/BIM pulls the plug. While CPM software vendors are focused on tricked-out scheduling engines, graphical user interfaces anchored on objectbase1 principles and gestural computing are progressing to where they are ignored at the user’s risk.
