DEVELOPMENT OF A WEB APPLICATION FOR SOLVING THE PROBLEM OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT METHODOLOGY SELECTION WITH FUZZY INPUT DATA

Игорь Владимирович Кононенко, Светлана Юрьевна Луценко

Abstract


The analysis of the latest research and publications devoted to the problem of choosing a management methodology for a particular project and studying the influence of the applied methodology on the project's success has been carried out. On the basis of the analysis performed, the necessity of automatization of the methodology selection problem’s solution is established. The method for choosing a project management methodology based on fuzzy concepts was used as an approach for solving the problem. The method uses a questionnaire with questions regarding the number of people involved in the project, the customer’s working experience with the team, the assessment of the project team’s competence by the project manager, project reporting, and the likelihood of risk events. For each situation specified in the questionnaire, with the help of the survey of experts, the membership functions of all considered project management methodologies are defined, i.e. their applicability to a specific situation. In accordance with the answers to the questions of the project questionnaire, the membership functions of the project evaluation for each of its parameters are formed. For all considered methodologies, their total weighted distances from the evaluation of the project by the questionnaire are calculated using Hamming and Euclidean distances. The approach, for which the calculated distances are minimal, is chosen. A web application PMGuide has been  developed to solve the problem of choosing a project management methodology with fuzzy input data. This web application is used to select a project  management methodology for developing PTCQR Optimization software to optimize the scope of the project. Based on the results of calculating, the
Euclidean and Hamming distances from this project to each of the seven alternatives (PMBOK, PRINCE2, ISO21500, SWEBOK, SCRUM, XP, and
KANBAN), the flexible SCRUM methodology was chosen as the best alternative for the conditions of the considered project. The test case confirmed the correctness of PMGuide web application for choosing the project management methodology.
