The Life Cycle on almost any project is approximately the same. The time span may be somewhat longer on some that others: the life of a roman sewer is likely to be longer than the life of a moon probe.

What is certain is that all projects have the following attributes:

  • A need is realised,
  • A solution is proposed, discussed and prepared,
  • The solution is implemented - built,
  • The project is comissioned - thats is put into a operable state deliverable to its owner,
  • The project "operates" - flows or flies ... and is maintained as needed,
  • The project ends - dismantled or burns up.
