Complementarily to the "Project" module, this module provides a specialized tool for constructing technical projects based on the "requirement -> specification -> task -> deliverable -> milestones" process.

This module can be used either for real project management or for project-based learning, when the object to be constructed is in a technological context. Initially designed for handling software oriented projects, it may be useful in any other technical domain, when the master process "requirements to deliverables" is consistent.

The module features five user-friendly tree-shaped entity editors that allow group constructing of the descriptions of the goal of the project, and managing concrete action plan.

Full cross-entity assignations allows drawing a complex dependency model between requirements, specifications, tasks, milestones and deliverables.

Completion covering indicators, cost estimation (simulated), time estimation.

Unit browser navigating among all forward and backwards dependencies network.

Gantt dynamically generated view.

The actual version is a beta version for helping tests and stabilization.

Step 1 features essentially stabilization of the presented beta, and finalizing framework features such as logging and event generating.

Step 2 roadmap features : more viewing tools adding Perth, more accurate signalling of constraints, more checks of tasks and faisibility constraints, attaching file to entities (e.g. to deliverables), extension of the assessability to any entity unit
