Flashcards in Managing the Project Scope Deck (16)
The work needed to create the product of the project
Change requests come in several modalities:
Oral or written
Direct or indirect
Internal or external
Legally mandated or optional
For the possible purpose of:
Errors or omissions
The process of breaking down the major project deliverables into smaller, manageable components.
Related to value engineering, this allows team input to the problem, institutes a search for a logical solution, and tests the functions of the product so the results can be graphed.
This method breaks down the product into components, examining each component individually and how it may work with other parts of the product.
Features and functions of the product of the project
The scope statement defines the boundaries of the project by defining what's included in the project scope--and what's excluded.
This deployment is a philosophy and a practice to fully understand customer needs--both spoken and implied--without gold-plating the project deliverables.
Scope Management Plan
An output of scope planning that controls how the project scope can be changed. The scope management plan also defines the likelihood of the scope to change, how often the scope may change, and how much it may change.
The process of the project customer accepting the project deliverables. Scope verification happens at the end of each project phase--or as major deliverables are created.
This process focuses on satisfying the customers' needs, cost requirements, and quality demands through the design and creation of the product.
Similar to value engineering, this focuses on the cost/quality ratio of the product. Value analysis focuses on the expected quality against the acceptable cost--also known as the cost of quality.
Deals with reducing costs and increasing profits, all while improving quality. Its focus is on solving problems, realizing opportunities, and maintaining quality improvement.
