Planning assumptions

At every stage during planning, assumptions are made which, if not valid, may put the plan at risk. Our activity network, for example, is likely to be built on the assumption of using a particular design methodology - which may be subsequently changed. We generally assume that, follow ing coding, a module w ill be tested and then integrated w ith others - we might not plan for module testing show ing up the need for changes in the original design but. in the event, it might happen.

At each stage in the planning process, it is important to list explicitly all of the assumptions that have been made and identify what effects they might have on the plan if they are inappropriate.
