Systematic Project Mangement

Systematic Project Management (SPM) reduces the risks of planning by requiring and rigorously checking all planning information and visualization of the results and impacts. The systematic capability implies an immediate verifiability and guidance of the user aimed at resilient, i.e. complete and high-quality planning without any contradictions.

With an iterative approach and incremental refinement of the plan checks can be carried out after every step and errors can be immediately corrected. The ultimate goal, which can be achieved with SPM, is the “Zero Defect“ status of the requirements.

Further information is also available from our SPM leaflet (PDF).


  • Planning-specific notation: All planning elements are classified and implicitly linked. They can be captured using either predefined or custom entry forms.
  • Guided Planning: the user utilises the forms and the methodology feedback to identify the required planning contents.
  • High Granularity: Planning may be refined and checked down to internals of a work package like activities, dependencies through input/output and due dates.
  • Derived Information: SPM automatically derives further implicit planning information about the project and work packages, respectively, from the primary planning elements as defined by the user.
  • Reports: the user defines the content of the reports from a list of documentation modules for text and graphics. Two principal reports are generated: planning and error report.
  • Checking / verification: SPM checks the provided requirements against the rules and identifies errors.
  • Checking / validation: SPM visualises original and derived planning information, enabling the user to assess the result of planning in the total context from different perspectives and to compare them with the intended goals. The user must identify deviations between desired intentions and actual situation.
  • Iterative: errors are corrected or requirements are modified.
  • Incremental: the planning is refined through a top-down process and the amount of planning information grows.
