    Document Structure

    1. General Information

    See schema 1. General Information.

    2. Marginal Conditions

    2. 1. Preliminaries

    This contains a description of the application scope for the SWMM Concept, of the application conditions to be taken into consideration, and how update is to be handled.

    2. 2. Reference Documents

    This chapter contains a list of the reference documents for the SWMM Concept.

    2. 3. Definitions

    This contains definitions of terms that are newly introduced with the SWMM Concept and that are essential for the understanding of the product.

    2. 4. Specifications for the SWMM Organization

    This contains specifications of marginal conditions with regard to staff, training, organization, infrastructure, logistics and programming languages. It is necessary to refer to existing logistical procedures.

    3. System Description

    General aspects like place of operation, time/time span and putting into operation have to be described.

    Special characteristics with regard to

    have to be stated.

    4. Evaluation with Regard to SWMM

    It is necessary to state for the individual system parts whether SWMM is to be realized or if it might become required or if no SWMM will be required at all. The responsibility for the SWMM has to be allocated to the corresponding organizations (e. g. authority, industry). Special characteristics of the system parts must be described together with their effects on the SWMM (e. g. SW quality, programming languages, documentation, use of standards).

    5. SWMM Organization

    The SWMM organization is described here. It is described how the SWMM team is set up (which departments, instances), how tasks and responsibilities have to be allocated to this organization, and which interfaces have to be considered.

    5. 1. Organizational Structure

    All departments are listed that carry out activities within the scope of SWMM.

    5. 2. Tasks and Responsibilities

    This is where the tasks and responsibilities of the participating departments are established.

    5. 3. Interfaces

    Communication interfaces with internal and external parties (customer, subcontractor, partner, bodies and committees, admission boards) are defined here. It is documented who is getting which type and form of information (technical or administrative, in writing or verbally) when (set date, periodically, event-driven) by whom or to whom he is going to pass it on.

    6. SWMM Process

    The SWMM realization process (e. g. application, analysis and classification of modifications, evaluation of modifications, configuration management, distribution on data media, and installation) has to be described.

    In particular, the procedure with regard to off-the-shelf-products has to be described.

    7. Resources

    The required personnel and technical resources are listed.

    7. 1. Staff

    The personnel requirements for SWMM are determined. It must be stated how far the personnel requirements can be covered by internal staff or if the realization of SWMM measures should be placed with external contractors. The required know-how of the required staff has to be documented.

    7. 2. Technical Prerequisites

    The prerequisites with regard to the realization of SWMM measures have to be defined. These include

    8. Making SWMM Ready to Work

    It must be planned how SWMM is made ready to work. This includes

    9. Transition to Utilization

    It must be documented here, how the System is to be transferred to the SWMM organization. While doing so, the following has to be taken into consideration:
