Process Plan Document


This template is provided for your reference, along with the others on the project page.  Note that it is written in markdown which is displayed differently here than it is on GitHub, so the formatting will look different once you have access to the repo — this is expected.

1 Introduction

The introduction provides context for the project. Write a concise description of the software you will develop and its target users. Be sure to cover what the software product will, and, if necessary, will not do.

1.1 Definitions and Acronyms

List any project definitions and acronyms introduced to the project by this plan. Be sure and define all acronyms before their use.  If no acronyms or terms requiring special definition are used, this section can be left out.

2 Process Description

Describe your process as a set of activities; for each activity, provide the following:

Activity name (verb or verb phrase)

  • Activity description (paragraph)
  • Entrance criteria (activity inputs and how you know that they have sufficient quality)
  • Exit criteria (deliverable document description and how you know it has been completed satisfactorily)

3 Effort Estimate

Provide estimates for the following metrics:

  • Effort hours: total number of team-member hours you expect to spend on the project
  • Lines of code: total number of lines of source code you expect to have in your final product
