3.3 Project Characteristics

The »Project Characteristics are used for characterizing a project. They can be assigned to a »Project Type and to a project type variant. Within the framework of the tailoring process, every project characteristic is marked by one if its possible values, which will be explained in this chapter. The selection of a value for each project characteristic generates a so-called »Application Profile. This application profile is no accurate description of a project. It is used for selecting additional optional process modules - in addition to the mandatory »Process Module of the project type and the project type variant - and for adapting the project execution strategy provided by the »Project Type Variant as required. The project characteristic »Security (Supplier) includes work products to be provided by the supplier into the project, which are not included in the project characteristic »Security (Acquirer).
