Microsoft Project 98

Microsoft Project is an easy-to-use, full-featured, award-winning project management package. Microsoft Project is a powerful planning, analysis, and management tool that lets you build enterprise-wide project management solutions.


Microsoft Project is designed to assist a project manager in developing a schedule, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing the budget, and analyzing workloads. Visualize the most complex plans by splitting a project into manageable steps to see in detail how the tasks are related, which are most important to your overall schedule, where bottlenecks will be, and how much the whole project will cost. Or, consolidate several projects to assess shared resources, team workloads, and whether the projects you're planning at one time really make sense together. You can even communicate the status of projects automatically. Project is part of the Microsoft Office family but has never been included in any of the Office suites. It is available currently in two editions, Standard and Professional. Project integrates well with Office, and features enhanced workgroup capabilities, Web publishing, Web integration, and much more.
