Hypermedia Browsing and Relational Query

Hypermedia browsing allows the user to access project databases and knowledge bases in a nonlinear way and may serve as a fundamental navigation mechanism for a project management system. Such a navigation mechanism is interactive and flexible; it can enhance information access in two significant ways. First, it uses a technique known as hypertext to integrate menu items into information. With hypertext, the users can explore the knowledge bases and project databases from one object to the related objects through the embedded menu items. The users can also navigate from one object to other objects through cross-reference links or direct links. Second, it allows text, graphics, images, audio, and video to be combined to form multimedia objects.

Other advanced mechanisms involve a sophisticated query/search technique for flexible and filtered access to project databases. Such mechanisms allow users to see the desired picture of a project, to identify the critical path, and to filter exceptional problems concerning schedules, budgets, or resources. Relational query tools may be used to facilitate the implementation of such advanced mechanisms.
