Software Development Project Plan

The foundation of a software development project is the project plan. A good project manager

will prepare a plan that is a roadmap for all the activities in the project. This plan will ensure all

the members of the software development team understand their tasks and the due dates for

these tasks. The plan will also account for the unknown by including a thorough risk analysis.

For this assignment, you will be preparing a project plan for your application. Because many of

the steps in the plan have already taken place in previous assignments, your project plan will be

largely a matter of documenting the steps, but this exercise will provide good practice in

preparing these plans and should also help you understand what should be included. You will

add this project plan to your Software Development Plan that you have been working on in the

first four modules of the course.

The project deliverables are:

  •  Title Page
  •  Table of Contents
  •  Project Plan

 Prepare a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for the project. Include time

estimates for the activities.

 Identify the major project milestones and deliverables.

 Prepare a project timeline that reflects the tasks and milestones. The timeline

should be represented as a Gantt chart and pasted into your document.

 Identify the resources required for the project and prepare a resource usage


 Include a discussion of the critical path for the project and evaluate the

sensitivity of the critical path.

 Prepare a risk analysis for the project. The risk analysis should identify key risk

factors and mitigation strategies.
