Project ManagementNUST College of Electrical & Mechanical Engineeringdeliverable is  defined  as  any  measurable, tangible, verifiable item that must be produced to complete a project. This  definition  is  often  interpreted  as  meaning objects  (i.e.  things  that  can  be  picked  up, manufactured, assembled and delivered)
