10 Elaborating the Definition … Temporary  means that every project has a definite beginning and definite end  End is reached when … project’s objectives have been achieved OR It is clear that objective will not be met. The project is terminated in such a situation  The term temporary does not apply to a project’s product or service (which is a lasting result) Unique  means that the product or service is different in some distinguishing way from all similar products or services

11 Projects Projects may involve a single person or thousands Projects may be completed in hours, several months or years Examples of projects  Developing a new product or service  Designing a new vehicle  Constructing a building  Running a campaign for political office  Implementing a new business procedure or process  And so on …

17 Software Project Management

18 a sub-discipline of project management in which software projects are planned, monitored and controlled

19 Project Planning Its purpose is to identify the  scope of the project,  estimate the work involved,  and create a project schedule. Project planning begins with requirements that define the software to be developed. The project plan is then developed to describe the tasks that will lead to completion

20 Project Monitoring and Control The purpose  To keep the team and management up to date on the project's progress.  If the project deviates from the plan, then the project manager can take action to correct the problem. Project monitoring and control involves status meetings to gather status from the team. When changes need to be made, change control is used to keep the products up to date.
