Michigan tunes personnel software development

Michigan's Human Resource Management Network is working to increase its control over software development projects by piloting services automation software, which will keep records of time and expense and compare the progress and costs of various projects.

The HR network oversees benefits for 65,000 state employees at 35 agencies. Managing the state's enterprise resource planning system costs about $2.8 million annually, said Richard Huneke, HRMN project director.

Since March 2001, the network has used ERP software from Lawson Software Inc. of St. Paul, Minn. 'We came up first with a basic human resources, benefits and payroll package,' Huneke said. 'Now we are going to build a comprehensive network.'

The network has about 20 development projects that now will be managed with Lawson's services automation software, Huneke said. The state recently paid about $120,000 for 100 licenses for the software, he said.
