1.3 Basic Concepts of the V-Modell

1.3.6 Project Execution Strategy

The V-Modell 97 specifies the input products required for the execution of an activity explicitly by the product flow. A comparable restriction does not exist in the present V-Modell. Process Modules and the products and activities included therein explicitly do not contain any specifications or restrictions regarding a possible sequence for executing activities or developing products.

Normally, the sequence of a project with regard to contents and time is complex. In order to permit a reliable planning and control of a project, an ordered project life cycle must be developed. For this purpose, the V-Modell provides the user with a Project Execution Strategy, the design of which depends on the Project Type and the Project Type Variant. A ยปProject Execution Strategy defines a basic framework for the ordered and replicable execution of a project.

The project execution strategy specifies "when", i.e. in which sequence, products will be developed and activities will be executed.
