Chapter 04 - Defining the Project 79. Identify and briefly describe the six elements on the recommended project scope checklist. 1. project objectives, 2. deliverables, 3. milestones, 4. technical requirements, 5. limits and exclusions, and 6. reviews with customers AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Comprehension Learning Objective: Step 1: Defining the Project Scope Level: Medium 80. In terms of project management, what is a deliverable and give an example. A deliverable is an expected output that occurs during the life of a project. AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Knowledge Learning Objective: Step 1: Defining the Project Scope Level: Easy 81.

Thus the criteria are traded off. AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Synthesis Learning Objective: Step 2: Establishing Project Priorities Level: Difficult 83. Identify and briefly describe the three categories used to classify the priority of major project parameters. 1. constrain (the parameter is fixed), 2. enhance (the parameter should be optimized), and 3. accept (lower results are acceptable) AACSB: Analytic Bloom's: Comprehension Learning Objective: Step 2: Establishing Project Priorities Level: Medium 84. What is a Project Priority Matrix and how would you use one? The Project Priority Matrix is a graphic representation classifying the major project parameters of time, performance, and cost according to their priority. It is used to assist in making project trade-off decisions.
