Before a software project is planned, the product objectives and scope should be established, technical and management constraints should be identified. Without this information it is impossible to define a reasonable cost,amount of risk involved,the project schedule etc. A software project scope must be unambiguous and understandable at the management and technical levels. To develop a reasonable project plan we have to functionally decompose the problem to be solved.
In order to manage a successful software project,we must understand what can go wrong (so that problems can be Avoided)and how to do it right. A project is a series of steps where we need to make accurate decision so as to make a successful project.
