SAS/OR Software


New Procedure: PROC PM

PROC PM enhances the extensive project management capabilities of SAS/OR software by providing a graphical user interface for creating and editing project activity data. The PM procedure's Project View combines a Table View and a Gantt View to enable you to define and modify your project models interactively, with immediate visual confirmation of the effects on the project schedule. Use the Gantt View to simultaneously examine up to four different versions of the project schedule (early/late unconstrained, actual, resource-constrained, baseline). Edit activity data directly via the Table View, or via drag-and-drop in the Gantt View. Add and delete activities, sub-activities, projects, and sub-projects; establish and modify precedence relationships; alter activity durations and time alignments; and more. Re-order the Table View data columns, shuffle the order of activities, hide activities, and expand or collapse projects and sub-projects to display just the activities and just the data that you need to see. Print all or part of your customized Gantt View and Table View for quick and easy reporting.

PROC PM is built on the foundation of PROC CPM's syntax, ensuring backward compatibility with PROC CPM. Thus, PROC PM can be easily integrated into any existing application that is built around PROC CPM and the other established project management tools in the SAS System.
