Software project oversight system

These days, most software companies work on complex projects that require a collaboration of multiple people across many geographic locations. Managers in such companies are responsible for integrating many complex projects while maintaining high accuracy and precision. However, due to increased complexity and the short time in which releases are expected, software projects often suffer from poor management and lack of quality project oversight. There is a consensus that project oversight plays a major and critical role in producing and sustaining quality software. With project management information systems, companies can coherently organize information required to accomplish projects successfully. These systems help to develop, execute, and monitor project management objectives. Therefore, the development of a system for monitoring project execution is very important for the success of any organization.
 
 Currently, many organizations use tools, such as JIRA, Workzone, and others for managing complex software projects. However, these tools are associated with problems, such as high deployment and training costs, unrequired features, User Interface (UI) clutter issues, etc. Free project management software solutions might be prone to security problems and often contain unwanted advertisements. 
 
 The purpose of this project is to develop an inexpensive, user-friendly and customizable alternate project oversight system to simplify the supervision of IT projects. The proposed system can be used by managers to oversee and manage software projects. The core functions of the system will include documenting project information, monitoring project quality by tracking bugs, conducting oversight assessments, collecting relevant project deliverables, generating project oversight reports, and providing a platform for employees to communicate and exchange information. The system will also allow staff to track project details, such as project scope, timeframe, and risk management.
