1.3 Basic Concepts of the V-Modell

1.3.3 Project Type Variant

For each »Project Type, the V-Modell offers at least one »Project Type Variant, which characterizes the Project in more detail. A Project Type Variant in a Project determines particularly the general conditions for possible project flows, which are used as selection criteria in the »Tailoring process. A Project Type Variant determines the design of the »Project Execution Strategy and thus the possible workflow in the coarse plan of a Project.

The selection of a Project Variant can also integrate »Process Module and »Project Characteristics , complementing those of the project type specifications, into the Project.

Figure 4 indicates different Project Type Variants provided by the V-Modell and the characteristics used for selecting the suitable Project Type Variant:
