A project assumption is anything that is held to be true but not proven to be true. Within the scope, the assumptions are defined, as is their impact on the project if an assumption proves to be false. For example, in construction, there are assumptions that the warmer seasons will be cooperative for outdoor work. No one can necessarily prove this, but it's believed to be true based on history. Should, however, the weather not cooperate, it could have huge impacts on the project.
