Flexible approaches such as agile, hybrid, and extreme project management from the software project environment are increasingly used in nonsoftware environments. Nevertheless, only a few methods and no topology-, time- or resource-related indicators or (multilevel) project databases can handle projects of a flexible nature. Therefore, this study shows how to extend existing project databases and indicators to examine and handle such projects. For this study, we merged several heterogeneous project databases into a compound matrix-based project database (CMPD). We compared real-life and simulated project databases, and we studied the effects of flexibility on structural and time- and resource-related indicators.
