Project Proposal Outline

1. PURPOSE AND SCOPE

The introductory paragraph describes the purpose of the system and the environment in which it will be used. Describe the likely users of the system, and list the stakeholders in the project (if it is being developed for an organization or business).

2. FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

This section describes the primary functionality or services to be provided by the system. Write one or more paragraphs describing the tasks to be performed, major types of input and output, and types of interfaces to be supported. The goal is that all involved people (users, designers, and any stakeholders) can read and understand the functionality that the system is intended to provide.

3. CONSTRAINTS

Any known constraints that will affect development of the system should be described in this section. Typical categories include:

  • available resources (hardware, software, expertise)

  • external environment

  • required interfaces (with existing hardware/software systems, and type of user interface)

  • cost limits

  • schedule requirements (if the project requires any timing not determined by the course schedule)

Constraints should be identified as soon as possible, because the time and resources available to the project are limited. The goals and constraints will be carefully reviewed to assure that the scope of the project is appropriate for the available time and resources.
