Lab exercise/assignment week 5
Project Requirements and Scope Management
To complete this exercise you need to review
- Lecture 4
- K. Schwalbe, Information Technology Project Management, Chapter 5
- K. Schwalbe, Information Technology Project Management, Appendix A
Imagine that you’re working on a small scale project to develop a new software system. For this exercise, you
can consider any simple software that you have used before such as an application for mobile phones, or a
web site, etc. and imagine that you manage its development.
- Give a name to the project
- use Lecture 4 and the textbook as a guide to write a Requirements Management Plan focusing mostly on
how you would collect and analyze project requirements. You can use various internet examples and
templates (if you use them, don’t forget to reference them in your assignment report).
- write a Functional Specification that includes collected, analyzed and approved (by you) requirements
- use the Functional Specification to write a Project Scope Statement that includes a product
scope description, a list of project deliverables, product user acceptance criteria, project
boundaries and assumptions. You can use textbook or lecture examples. You can use examples from
other sources.
- decompose project work into at least 16 tasks and subtasks. Use MS Project to implement a WBS
with summary tasks. Set milestones.
Enable task numbering as was explained in the lab exercise week 3. Review examples from
Lecture 4, the textbook and various online sources before you create your own. Analyze the Gant chart to
review your project workflow. Make sure you use appropriate links between related tasks.
- select one of the tasks and write a WBS Dictionary for it. It shall be detailed enough to be used by
programmers, or web designers. See examples in the lecture and the textbook.
