This lesson covers the control scope process which is the process to monitor the status of the project and project scope. This manages changes to the scope baseline. [toggle_content title="Transcript"] The last process in scope management is control scope. This is also under monitoring and controlling. The control scope process is to monitor the status of the project and the product scope. This manages changes to the scope baseline. Key input to the project management plan, requirements documentation, requirements traceability matrix, work performance data and organizational process assets. The project manager will use variance analysis to create work performance information, change request, update the product management plan, and project documentation updates and update to organizational process assets. So project management plan; what inputs the project manager is going to be concerned about is the change control log. Basically using the project management plan to determine what changes are occurring. Requirements documentation is to determine what the requirements are. Requirements traceability matrix is the matrix following all the requirements and what impacts they will have. So basically, you are trying to see what requirements are active and what impact is going to be to the requirement. Work performance data is data that is being created as the project is in motion. And you also have organizational processes assets which might be tools or templates to help with the control scope process. Your tools are variance analysis. So you are basically comparing what was planned and what actually happened. So you are trying to see what the difference is between the two. And once again, you have group decision-making techniques. Your outputs are going to be change request or you are going to have work performance information being created out of this. That is it first scope. [/toggle_content]
