MIS 6019 South University Project Management Paper


Week 1 Project – Due

MIS6010-Project Management SU01

The Project Scope Statement is a document that outlines the following elements:

Project Justification: Includes reasons for the project including financial reasoning and explanation of the business need.

Project Description: Provides an overview of the project

  • Time and Cost Estimates: Estimate of the total time and cost of the project
  • Assumptions: Sometimes there are unknown variables and estimates must be made. It is an action believed to be true. An example may be an assumption that a community is in favor of a new building being constructed. If a survey was not taken to ensure community support, it is an assumption.
  • Constraints: This outlines restrictions that may impact the outcome of the project. All projects have time, budget, scope, and quality constraints. One time constraint may be that a project can only be worked on between the hours of 8am and 10pm due to labor laws. These types of constraints must be noted.
  • The project for the course will be simple: the installation of a new network that includes an upgrade of software for 100 users. The new network will replace an old network and the software upgrade is a business application that is used daily by every user. With that project in mind, how would you populate each element and what information should be included?
