Authors(1) :-Sirivella Vijaya Bhaskar

Evaluating technological investments has been a central concern in industrial engineering research and practice for decades. Critical path method (CPM), PERT and project portfolio management (PPM) are intangible frameworks that are most widely used to attain utmost efficiency and increase the technical and financial benefits in small scale industries to big corporate companies.

This exploratory research study endeavors its evaluation based on the data analysis and concludes statistical analysis using cumulative weighed average (CWA) and chi-square analysis techniques. The analysis unveiled that PPM technique provides many benefits and identifying appropriate technology to align with market dynamics and identifying and managing gaps in product portfolio are the major benefits that PPM implementing companies attains. The identified problems should be eluded to maximize the benefits of project portfolio management.
