    The goal of this activity is to realize the project-specific customization of the V-Model. The result is documented in the Project Manual which is to be the basis for communications between customer and contractor (in the case of an external placement).

    The Project Manual is generated in a number of substeps. The tender-relevant tailoring is comprised of the steps "Definition of the Form of the Project-Specific V-Model", "Selection and Customization of Activities and Products", and "Definition of Deletion Conditions for the Technical Tailoring". Substeps that are not mandatory have been marked as "optional".

    * Definition of the Project-Specific V-Model

    * Selection and Customization of Activities and Product

    * Definition of Deletion Conditions for the Technical Tailoring

    When starting a project, it should already be determined under which conditions real instantiations of activity and product classes can be dropped in that project. Technical conditions from Part 3 Collection of Manuals ("Tailoring" manual) may be used for this. The deletion conditions relevant for the project must be applied for activities and products of the project-specific V-Model (chapter Project Manual.Overview), and, during the project in activity PM4 - Detailed Planning, to the individual activities.

    * Participation of Customer

    If the customer participates in the project or not can be decided by himself. The activities/roles matrices must be customized, according to his requests and possibilities (see Part 3 Collection of Manuals, Concept of Roles in the V-Model manual). This information is of importance to the contractor so he knows where to expect possible opposition from the customer. Any other rights/responsibilities of the customer can be defined in the contract.

    * Generation of Overview of Contract-Related Specifications

    The Project Manual must contain specifications relevant to the contract (activities and products to be realized or deleted, objects to be delivered, participation of the customer) in a clearly laid out form. Any products not to be delivered have to be considered as internal development documents.

    Also required is an agreement and assessment of the Project Manual between the customer (role Project Manager or Q Manager) and the QA Manager in the project with regard to completeness, clarity, and feasibility.

    If the assessment is successful the Project Manual changes to state "accepted".


    The QA Plan lists for which activities and products the assessment activities (QA2 - Assessment Preparation and QA4 - Product Assessment) have to be realized in the project.

    The Project Manual is (contrary to the Project Plan) a predominantly unchanging, static document.
