    There is a yearly conference in Germany regarding to PPM.

    About PS: It's often used for very complex project illustration (MTO / ETO) inside of SAP.
    What does "complex" means? One option is to work by a large WBS and network activity struktre. Another option could be to work by a multi-level BOM.
    No exception is to work by more than 1000 PS objects or BOM items for a single project.
