Software Project Management (SPM) is one of the primary factors to software success or failure. SPM has been the bottleneck in software engineering area. The authors apply an improved max - min ant system algorithm to software project planning to make the appropriate worker-task assignment in a software project so the cost and duration of the project are minimized. Experimental results shows that using this improved ant colony optimization algorithm can obtain a feasible solution which can help them to get the appropriate PERT graph and Gantt chart of the software project, then they can obtain the minimized project duration and cost.
