Project boundariesEvery project has boundaries. The scope statement defines theboundaries of the project by defining what's included in the project scope—and what'sexcluded. For example, a project to create a piece of software may include the createdcompilation of a master software image, but excludes the packaging and delivery of thesoftware to each workstation within an organization.Project deliverablesThe high-level deliverables of the project should be identified.These deliverables, when predefined metrics are met, signal that the project scope has beencompleted. When appropriate, the scope statement should also list what deliverables areexcluded from the project deliverables. For example, a project to create a new food productmay state that it is not including the packaging of the food product as part of the project.Items and features not listed as part of the project deliverables should be assumed to beexcluded.Project acceptance criteriaThe scope statement defines the requirements foracceptance. This establishes what exactly qualifies a project's success or failure.

Project constraintsA constraint is anything that restricts the project manager's options.Common constraints include predefined budgets and schedules. Constraints may alsoinclude resource limitations, material availability, and contractual restrictions.Project assumptionsAn assumption is anything held to be true, but not proven to betrue. For example, weather, travel delays, the availability of key resources, and access tofacilities can all be assumptions.Initial project organizationThe project team members, the project manager, and thekey stakeholders are identified and documented. The chain of command within the project isalso documented.Initial defined risksThe scope statement should document the known risks and whattheir expected probability and impact on the project may be.Scheduled milestonesThe project customer may have identified milestones within theproject and assigned deadlines using these milestones. The scope should thus identify thesemilestones which are essentially schedule constraints.Fund limitsMost projects have a limitation on available funding. This limit should beidentified in the project scope statement.Cost estimateJust as organizations have a limited amount of funds to invest in a project,they have expectations for an estimate of what the project should cost to complete. Thisestimate usually includes some modifier, such as +/a percentage or dollar amount.Project configuration management requirementsNo project manager wants theirproject to be run amok with changes. This section of the scope statement identifies the levelof change control and configuration management that can be expected within the project.
