The scope of this activity will be dependant on scale of the project. For smaller projects only a quality schedule may be appropriate. For larger projects a quality plan will be required. Full details are provided in the User Guide.
Essentially you should identify each deliverable from the WBS and schedule, and ask how will you know the deliverable meets quality expectations? From this you will be able to work out what you need to do to ensure the required level of quality.
There are two perspectives on quality:
- Is it well constructed.
- Is is accurate/appropriate
Something may be well constructed but not accurate/appropriate. For example a document may be well written and concise but have the wrong information. Code may be perfect but it does not perform the function it was meant to perform. You need to decide what needs to be checked when arranging quality activities.
