Purpose

This standard specifies the format and content of SPMPs. This standard does not specify the exact techniques to be used in developing an SPMP, nor does it provide examples of SPMPs. Each organization using this standard should develop a set of practices and procedures to provide detailed guidance for preparing and updating of SPMPs based on this standard. These practices and procedures should take into account the environmental, organizational, and political factors that influence application of the standard.

Not all software projects are concerned with development of source code for a new software product. Some software projects consist of a feasibility study and definition of product requirements. Other software projects terminate upon completion of product design, and some projects are concerned with major modifications to existing software products. This standard is applicable to all types of software projects; applicability is not limited to projects that develop source code for new products. Project size or type of software product does not limit application of this standard. Small projects may require less formality in planning than large projects, but all components of the standard should be addressed by every software project.

Software projects are sometimes component parts of larger projects. In these cases, the SPMP may be a separate component of a larger plan or it may be merged into a system-level or business-level project management plan.
