The PRIMA project is carried out at the Université des Sciences Sociales or UT1 (University of Economy, Law and Management), by the department SSPI (Sciences Sociales Pour l'Ingénieur), specialised in advanced Information Systems for project management, strategic decision support systems and co-operative work.

The PRIMA project, or "Project RIsk MAnagement" (IST-1999-10193), has been initiated as the result of UT1-SSPI previous research and projects (and notably Esprit Project DECIDE n° 22298). It is carried out as another element towards a long term research goal: strategic decisions in project management.

UT1 organise general training in information systems and decision support systems for their own students.

Therefore the use of PRIMA will result as significant education, consulting and research support for the Institution.

The department is supervising research in Industrial Information Systems. Methodologic and pedagogic toughts are leaded on :

  • Engineering of needs in the industrial systems.
  • Interdisciplinarity between the engineering and social sciences.
  • The accurate targets are :

    1. Specification of the Strategic Decision Support Sytems (DSS) related to the management of project.
