A project has a specific time frame or finite life span. It has a start time and a date by which the objective must be accomplished. For example, the refurbishing of an elementary school might have to be completed between June 20 and August 20.

The project work scope must be accomplished in a quality manner and meet specifications. For example, in a house-building project, the customer expects the workmanship to be of the highest quality and all materials to meet specifications. Completing the work scope but leaving windows that are difficult to open and close, faucets that leak, or a landscape full of rocks will result in an unsatisfied customer and perhaps a payment or legal dispute. Mechanisms such as standards, inspections, audits, and so forth must be put in place to assure quality expectations are being met throughout the project and not just checked or inspected at the end of the project, when it might be costly to correct.

Generally, the later in the project that changes are identified, the greater their effect on accomplishing the project objective. The aspects most likely to be affected are the project budget and the completion date. This is particularly true when work that has already been completed needs to be “undone” to accommodate the required change. For example, it would be very expensive to change the plumbing or wiring in a new office building after the walls and ceilings are completed because some of them would need to be torn out and new ones installed.
