With the advancement of technology and the rapid development of the Internet, people’s work, study, and life rely more on the convenience of computers and software, Lenovo, as the smart device manufacturer with the highest market share in the world, pays close attention to the needs of its customers and develops more convenient hardware and software to adapt to the rapid changes in the market. In this context, the company’s preload software project management team is facing more challenges. There are many problems that often affect the efficiency of project managers and thus on-time delivery of software products, such as frequent changes in requirements, the need for project managers to undertake more projects than they can handle, unclear division of work within the team, and long processing time for bug limitation. The author used project management theory and software project schedule management theory to analyze and propose hypotheses to address the problems: use Gantt charts to set and manage key project milestones and monitor the impact of changes on the project schedule; add a Bug Manager and a SPM assistant roles to handle the duplicate workload of common bug and bug limitation to reduce the burden of all SPMs’ and unclear division of labor; optimize the limitation process in the Bug Management System to improve the efficiency of handling Limitation. Through quantitative research method, the project manager was allowed to adopt the new methods during the one-year project management cycle. After the experimental verification, these methods greatly improved the efficiency of SPM, and the time saved was used for other project management work, thus ensuring the completion of the project schedule on time. We hope that the research methods and theories in this paper can provide valuable references and lessons for other pre-installed software management or software development companies.
