Major Elements of SPMP

describes the how of the project processes discussed earlier in this chapter.1—1 It describes how the project team will implement the life cycle software development processes of the chosen life cycle.

The project charter information is integrated into appropriate sections of the SPMP. The rest of the document contains sections that include

® Project organization

® Managerial processes

® Technical processes

® Work packages, schedule, and budget

When completed and approved, the SPMP becomes the benchmark for controlling the project during execution (the do it step).
