LINEAR + INCREMENTAL PMLC MODELS 3 Abstract The Traditional Project Management approach has been around longer than any other project management approach. The TPM has its beginning since the 1950s and was once called PCS or Process Control System. The earlier TPM version, PCS, was a set of phases or process steps which defined the project definition, plan, execution, and closing phases. The early days of PCS utilized GANTT charts which depicted the relationships among tasks that the project manager defined. Project estimations and duration allowed a schedule to be calculated and the critical path of a project was identified accordingly. Until the 1980s the PCS approach was the main choice of project managers and developers. Even now, the “old” way of doing project is a habit and old habits die hard! Since the 1980s, the project management landscape has been radically changing. The Agile Project Management (APM) approach is common place today. Both the Linear and the Incremental models follow the Traditional Project Management approach.
