Delphi's object-oriented architecture enables projects to use resources from a wide variety of physical locations. Some of the units in a project might reside in the project directory, while others might reside in the directory of the project that created them, or in some other directory.
If you never reuse in other projects anything you create in one project, you'll have little difficulty keeping track of what files are being used in a project and where they reside. (You'll also miss out on one of Delphi's biggest benefits, however!)
As you create new projects, create new forms and units in projects, and share files from other projects, keeping track of what files a project uses and where those files are stored becomes more and more necessary. The Delphi Project Manager makes this task and several others easier to do, and more centrally accessible.
