1. What should the project team do if the project requirements are vague, incomplete or incompatible when the project is initiated?
Refuse to start the project until the requirements are clear.
Include a requirements planning task early in the project to improve the quality of the requirements.
Do the project based upon the project team’s interpretation of what the requirements should be and if the stakeholders don’t like it they can change order the project.
2. When would you use a traceability matrix?
At the time of project closeout to trace whether all project tasks have been completed.
To manage requirements on large complex projects with many technical requirements.
When creating custom artwork to ensure that all pictures and drawings were traced correctly.
3. What is the relationship between an SOW and project requirements?
For projects being done under contract, a customer will provide a Standard Operating Workflow (SOW) that details how they want the project results to be integrated into their normal operations.
The Strategically Oriented Workflow (SOW) contains the project management methodology requirements that the project is expected to follow.
For projects being performed on contract to a customer, the Statement of Work (SOW) is normally the document that contains all project requirements, or contains references to where those requirements can be found.
