The authors aim at constructing an integrated software project management system with an object database. This paper describes a process model for software project management that forms the basis of the system. This paper also describes a framework for inducing the sequence of operations that the project manager must perform: issuing instructions to workers in accordance with a plan based on the process model, progress evaluation based on progress reports sent from the workers, and analysis of the impacts of any problems detected. In order to provide these facilities, we analyse the actions triggered per unit of activity from the viewpoint of project management. Based on this analysis, this paper proposes a finite state machine model involving the actions and the states changed by the actions. When an action is triggered, the system checks whether the action is effective or not, and provides the necessary information to the appropriate persons by referring to the relationships specified in the process model. This paper also describes prototype system based on the framework
