This sample is helpful even if it must be completed (links are missing and some tasks may or must be added depending on the contexte)
I want to prevent a mistake in the project file I saw in the parameters.
When I opened it I noticed that working time is 8:00-12:00 AM and 01:00-05:00 PM that means 8 hours/day BUT in the Options I saw 9h/day => that means all the durations are not in consistency with de working time and so the end of each task is false.
Please just control these parameters before using it.


This is an excellent source. Thanks a million.


Great resource !


thanks alot, it saved time


Thanks for sharing!


As a Project Management and Project Controls professional dependencies at the summary level is not acceptable as well as missing dependencies. The overall WBS is fine but this really should not be labeled as premium content.


This is an excellent staring point to develop your own project plan. Of course, there is still so much work to be done to have a coherent project plan that meets your specific initiative. Many thanks to for their contributions

I am here to learn..just beginning my project management career. I hope to learn from the site and from member experts.

I think this is the website for the right people in the right jobs, this web site helped me learn a lot about project management.

i m a software student i tink tis web will help me...

Thanks It is useful for me too.

I just feel compelled to make sure any beginners understand that a substantial amount of information needs to be added to this plan. I also have heartburn linking to summary tasks. In my book, that's a no-no. It obscures the critical path just to begin with. That said, there is a lot of good information in this schedule and it outlines most of the key things that ought be covered.


I'm wondering, whether the following chapter must be in this SDP - "Relationship between other Software Plans within Software Development project. SQA Plan, V&V Plan and (if this SW is the embedded SW of real-time system) Software Certification Plan.
I think this template is helpful! But its necessary to specify that this template's content isn't enough.


this site is useful to begineers it helped me to some extent


Very help full, thanks a lot

Found it very easy to follow and relevant for my projects


What a time-saver. Thanks!


Found this project plan very useful, save lots of time thanks
