The Scardo official answer is A.
Database is part of PMIS but they are also part of Project Records - that option is also given.
Whichone is more correct and why?
Project Management Information System is not a communication tool.Information Management System is the communication tool.Whether both are same ?
Please clarify.

Project Management Information System is a communication tool enabling pull communication. Project document is not a tool. Am I right or :?
Project Management Software->Project Management Information System->Information Management Systems: All of these appear in PMBOK.

Hi There,

The main point here to click is we are talking about accessing the blueprints by use of a software/tool for sorting/searching purpose. Project records in PMBOK (R) is as below

Project records may include correspondence, memos, meeting minutes, and other documents describing the project. This information should, to the extent possible and appropriate, be maintained in an organized manner. Project team members can also maintain records in a project notebook or register, which could be physical or electronic.


full definition talk about manual papers and filing it in organized manner so that future reference manually is easy but not as a tool. Wherever we talk about a automation of retriving information, PMIS is the clue. see below

An information system consisting of the tools and techniques used to gather, integrate, and disseminate the outputs of project management processes. It is used to support all aspects of the project from initiating through closing, and can include both manual and automated systems.

Here my query was different. PMIS is tools and technique but this is not a T& T under Communication Management area.So what should be the response.
Project Records also not T&T.
so nearest answer is PMIS only.
Pl. comment if my logic is ok. :lol: :lol:

As per my understanding Communication Tool in question is not referred as Communication Management T&T. It has been used in general terms. Therefore while attempting the question you have to think generic I guess

Both Project Records, and leasson learned are not tools, so both options B, C are not correct.

Configuration management system is subsystem of Project Management information system. I think the correct answer should be D , as its more specific than option A.


The project management information system, which is part of the environmental factors, provides access to tools, such as a scheduling tool, a work authorization system, a configuration management system, an information collection and distribution system, or interfaces to other online automated systems. Automated gathering and reporting on key performance indicators (KPI) can be part of this system.(PMBOK, P:84)


Configuration management plan. The configuration management plan defines those items that are configurable, those items that require formal change control, and the process for controlling changes to such items.(p:138,PMBOK)


Configuration Management System. A subsystem of the overall project management system. It is a collection of formal documented procedures used to apply technical and administrative direction and surveillance to: identify and document the functional and physical characteristics of a product, result, service, or component; control any changes to such characteristics; record and report each change and its implementation status; and support the audit of the products, results, or components to verify conformance to requirements. It includes the documentation, tracking systems, and defined approval levels necessary for authorizing and controlling changes.(P:532,PMBOK)

Correct option is A,
The question does not mention any need or hints at configuration management, you need to be logical in trying to relate answer to information provided in question
