International Journal of Information Technology Project Management (IJITPM) Volume 5, Issue 1

Book Description

This fully refereed journal examines current, state-of-the art research in the areas of information technology project management, and the interactions, linkages, applications, and support of project management using information systems. The journal encompasses theoretical, analytical, or empirical research, comprehensive reviews of relevant research, technical reports, book reviews, and also case studies of effective applications in this area. The use of new frameworks, principles, technologies, methods, and techniques are emphasized.

This issue contains the following articles:

  • A Computer-Aided Conceptual Cost Estimating System for Pre-Stressed Concrete Road Bridges
  • A Neural Network Model for Predicting Cost of Pre-Fabricated Housing
  • Microblogging in Project Management: Improving Project Communication and Documentation with Status Information
  • An Integrated Information System for Monitoring Construction Works
  • The Project Management Perspective for a Digital City
  • Managing Preliminary Requirements Information in Information Technology Projects
  • Approaching IT Automation Decisions using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)
  • Fuzzy Based Project Time-Cost Optimization Using Simulated Annealing Search Technique
