Automated Project Generation:  Overcoming the “Template Trap”

Interactive Project Generation Quickly Creates Project Plans



Traditional project management systems utilize static project and process templates to manage projects.  These templates must be modified manually, resulting in hundreds or even thousands of disparate templates.  Thumbprint CPM, conversely, builds projects without the use of templates by using a dynamic process model called a knowledgebase.  This knowledgebase taps into existing databases or asks interview-like questions during project creation to obtain the needed conditions surrounding a specific project applying knowledge learned on past projects (see diagram to right).   Thumbprint CPM can also search external systems (such as accounting software) to find answers to these questions during project generation---further extending your ability to share knowledge across your company. The knowledgebase adapts to conditions you set during project generation and it takes just minutes to create a new project.
