Task IV.23 Write a project plan for making changes


IV.23.1 Develop cost/effort and schedule estimates for the maintenance.

Intent: The intent of this task is to develop an estimate of project effort for the maintenance. In addition, project duration and schedule are developed.

Mechanics: The requirements for the maintenance (Task IV.22) are evaluated and modifications to the product are specified. Once the modifications are known, cost/effort, duration and schedule can be determined.


    1. Estimates of effort and cost for the maintenance

    2. Project timeline charts

    3. Task network (showing tasking interdependencies and parallelism) and Resource tables (showing allocated resources to specific tasks)

Process Flow: See software project management umbrella activity..


IV.23.2 Develop a Project Plan for the maintenance activity.

Intent: The intent of this task is to develop a written project plan, review the plan with management and the customer(s) and make necessary revisions to the plan.

Mechanics: Information developed in Tasks IV.23.1 is gathered and organized into a Project Plan document. The document is then reviewed internally for consistency.

Deliverables: Software Project Plan
