Hi ,

Could you please explain to me the difference between the following?
  1. The project management information system
  2. The project management software
  3. The scheduling tool.

    Appreciate your help and support.

Though the PMBOK doesn't explain it, these would be your proprietary tools (i.e. Microsoft Project for #2) or a Web-based application within your corporation's Project Management Office for #1. #3 could be your human resource management tool that tracks how many hours your employees work so they are paid correctly. There isn't a one size fits all. If it helps you clarify further, think about #1 being a largest database of all the projects going on, #2 is the software to help you manage a single project, and #3 helps you with scheduling resources for use within a project.
Yours Respectfully
