Appendix I. Program and Project Products by Phase

I.1 Product Owner and Requirement or Best Practice:

a. The Product Owner for each product is indicated in the column titled “Product Owner/Requirement or Best Practice.

b. Products listed in the I-Tables are either requirements or best practices.

c. “R” in the Product Owner/Requirement or Best Practice column indicates that a product is a requirement. Products that are requirements are included in the Compliance Matrix in Appendix C.

d. “BP” in the Product Owner/Requirement or Best Practice column indicates that the product is considered a best practice. The expectation is that the product will be developed per the I-Table as part of normal program management activities.

I.2 For non-configuration-controlled documents, the following terms and definitions are used in tables I-1 through I-7:

a. “Initial” is applied to products that are continuously developed and updated as the program or project matures.

b. “Final” is applied to products that are expected to exist in this final form (e.g., minutes and final reports).

c. “Summary” is applied to products that synthesize the results of work accomplished.

d. “Plan” is applied to products that capture work that is planned to be performed in the following phases.

e. “Update” is applied to products that are expected to evolve as the formulation and implementation processes evolve. Only expected updates are indicated. However, any document may be updated, as needed.

I.3 For configuration-controlled documents, the following terms and definitions are used in tables I-1 through I-7:

a. “Preliminary” is the documentation of information as it stabilizes but before it goes under configuration control. It is the initial development leading to a baseline. Some products will remain in a preliminary state for multiple LCRs. The initial preliminary version is likely to be updated at subsequent LCRs but remains preliminary until baselined.

b. “Baseline” indicates putting the product under configuration control so that changes can be tracked, approved, and communicated to the team and any relevant stakeholders. The expectation on products labeled “baseline” is that they will be at least final drafts going into the designated LCR and baselined coming out of the LCR. Baselining of products that will eventually become part of the Program or Project Plan indicates that the product has the concurrence of stakeholders and is under configuration control. Updates to baselined documents require the same formal approval process as the original baseline.

c. “Approve” is used for a product, such as Concept Documentation, that is not expected to be put under classic configuration control but still requires that changes from the “Approved” version are documented at each subsequent “Update.”

d. “Update” is applied to products that are expected to evolve as the formulation and implementation processes evolve. Only expected updates are indicated. However, any document may be updated, as needed. Updates to baselined documents require the same formal approval process as the original baseline.

I.4 Control Plans (Tables I-1 (Program Plan Control Plans), I-3, I-5, and I-7):

a. Control plans can either be part of the Program or Project Plan or separate stand-alone documents referenced in the appropriate part of the Program or Project Plan.

b. Considerations for determining if a control plan should be a stand-alone document include a requirement that the control plan be stand-alone in the NPR that requires the control plan; differences between when the control plan is baselined and when the Program or Project Plan is baselined; how frequently the control plan will be updated since updates to the Program or Project Plan require signatures; and how long the control plan is.

c. When the control plan is a stand-alone document, the Program or Project Plan contains a reference to the stand-alone document.

1.5 Formats for Non-Control Plan I-Table Products

a. Unless a specific form, format, document, or document template is identified by the NPR that requires an I-Table product, the documentation format is flexible (e.g., LCR or KDP presentation charts or as part of a document such as the Program or Project Plan).
