The paper discusses the existing problems in developing and maintaining project life cycles and proposes a tool as a possible solution. This tool is part of an integrated tool set, called Project Engineer, which has been designed to support the maintenance of software projects from a project management perspective. A PC platform is chosen and the user interface is based on Microsoft Windows 3.0. One module is selected for discussion and demonstration of the concept: the Life Cycle Builder. The purpose of this module is to manipulate project life cycles and templates. Project Engineer uses Multiple Document Interface, which is an IBM SAA/CUA standard provided by Microsoft Windows 3.0. It also uses the objects, properties, roles, and relationships (OPRR) based data engine. Each module in Project Engineer is internally independent of the other modules. Coordination among the modules is provided by the OPRR project database engine
