Scope Baseline

The scope baseline (Section 5.3.3.3) describes the need, justification, requirements, and current boundaries for the project. It consists of the following components:

• Scope statement. The project scope statement contains the product scope description, service description and result description, the list of deliverables, and acceptance criteria as well as important information regarding technical issues or concerns that could impact cost estimating. Examples of constraints are required delivery dates, available skilled resources, and organizational policies.

• Work breakdown structure (WBS). The project's WBS (Section 5.3.3.1) provides a pictorial display of the relationships among the components of the project and the project deliverables (Section 4.3.3.1).

• WBS dictionary. The WBS dictionary (Section 5.3.3.2) and related detailed statements of work provide an identification of the deliverables and a description of the work in each WBS component required to produce each deliverable.
