Similar to Microsoft Office SharePoint server  (MOSS) 2007, Project
Server 2007 is a WSS3.0-based application, and both can coexist nicely
in the same sharepoint  farm. Depending upon your business and technical
requirements, you may choose to install these two SharePoint
applications in the same farm  or in separate farms. Here is an article
which briefly describes some of the pros and cons of installing these
two applications in the same farm:


We highly recommend spending time before your deployment learning more
about how both tools work -- separately and together -- and gathering
detailed business requirements from the people who will be using these

If you do choose to integrate project  Server and MOSS 2007, there are
some nice synergies which can be created, such as...

-- The use of Excel Services (MOSS) to create rich Business
Intelligence reports on project and resource data (Project Server).
-- The use of proposal workflows (MOSS) to automate the project
proposal and approval process (Project Server).
-- The use of Enterprise Search (MOSS) to index  and search project
artifacts such as issues, risks, deliverables, and documents (Project
-- The use of the Business Data Catalog (MOSS) to index and search
through volumes of project, resource, and assignment data (Project

...and these are just a few examples.
