Project Preference is a term which refers to two major meanings that are explained below:
- Project Preference is a process of regulation of a project’s supply policy or procurement strategy by granting specific privileges (preferences) to selected suppliers or contractors. For example a project’s sponsors may sanction buying only domestically produced materials and products for the needs of this project – this may happen because of the government protectionistic policy that implies certain compensations for preferring inland producers.
- Project Preference (in computer-based project management systems) stands for software settings referring to project security, manageability, informational policy, resource sharing, etc. Classic examples of project preferences embrace: naming a project, associating a project with a picture, selecting project tools, setting policies on emails and popup messages, regulating project rules such as upon access to information, specifying graphics color schemes for interface, etc.
