We are going to present an implementation of an AI system, CaBMA, built on top of a commercial project management tool, MS Project. Project management is a business process for successfully delivering one-of-a kind products and services under real-world time and resource constraints. CaBMA (for: Case-Based Project Management Assistant) provides the following functionalities: (1) It captures cases from project plans. (2) It reuses captured cases to refine project plans and generate project plans from the scratch. (3) It maintains consistency of pieces of a project plan obtained by case reuse. (4) It refines the case base to cope with inconsistencies resulting from capturing cases over a period of time. CaBMA adds a knowledge layer on top of MS Project to assist the user with his project management tasks.
