Jorge -

What is the project's purpose and why do we need to do this project now?

If you can't get good answers to those questions or not all of the key stakeholders support those answers, don't start the project!

You need two things: 1) business case, and 2) funding. You can then start the project plan, possibly charter, and then implement..

What is the business need?
How does this project address the need?
Is this project the best solution among alternative solutions (including do nothing)?
Is the project viable in the current business environment?
Are funding and other necessary resources available?
Is the funding/resources best spent on this business need or other needs?
Jorge,

maybe take this 45 minutes course by PMI https://www.pmi.org/kickoff

And maybe look at a project canvas to understand what areas to look at. (Example https://www.pm2alliance.eu/forum/pm2-alliance-project-canvas/) The least you need is a sponsor and a project manager.

Assuming this is an internal project which it sounds like, do you have a project charter approved by the project sponsor?

If not, you don't have a project... yet.
Fully aligned with @Peter comments above. Just to add, it implies that the problem was understood then the solution defined to start a project to create it. Obviously, at the level of detail that the defined process allows.

Their is steps as per PMI Initiation Process group ; I advise as follow :
1-First Contract review and management approval need to be secured
2- Contract acknowledgement to customer
3-Creating Project Folder
4-Sending Invitation for Project Internal Kick off meeting
5-After completion an External Kick off meeting with customer need to be done
6- After that you need to proceed with planning

The more I see this website link on every post, the more I consider it inappropriate advertising spam for a private consulting business.

Suggest you re-read the post by Heather with regards to use of site. You can find it as the first post, at the top of the list, titled "please read before posting".
The most important question to ask is if starting a new project will bring business value to your organization, the value could be tangible or intangible.
Peter identified the business case as the important input into deciding to start a project. Don't forget to think about what you want the organization to look like upon project completion; that should be your project vision.
