Hi Harish, A work authorization 'system' is inclusive of both the process/rules and a tool to enable/track work. Think of 'system' like an ecosystem, not just the tool itself, but also the rules and governance around the work. So in your example, Sharepoint could be configured to be a tool that receives requests, tracks them, notifies, but you'll also need the governance and rules that people follow to enable/keep work going/stop work, agreed to by stakeholders before the tool is in place. As for an intake/tracking tool - that could be a spreadsheet, Access DB, a PPM tool, Sharepoint, there are numerous options out there. Hope this helps.

I agree with Kim. She is spot on. You can use a tool like Microsoft Project and create the processes and procedures that complement the tool that you and your team will work with to achieve your objectives and deliverables.
