                     Project Documentation Plan

1 Introduction
This document sets out the standards for the following:
     Document formats
     Structure of the Project Documentation in the Windows folders
     Project Identification/file naming conventions
     Document Version Control
     Distribution and approval of Documents

All documents use the MS Word document (File  Properties) facility to hold additional document
attributes, namely
 Summary
      Title
      Subject
      Author
 Custom
      Version
      Status
      Project

2 Document Formats
All project documents are compatible with MS Office 97, the current <company> standard.



3 Project Documentation Folders
The folders are on the shared network drive \\abcdef\<company> (X: Drive)
This network drive is accessible by both the user community and IT (read-write access).

Since the SAP implementation is split across two discrete projects then each project has its own
identical folder structure.

The projects’ folder structures are located within X:\SAP\xyz.

The grouping for project folders consists of the following elements: -
     01 Project Prep
     02 Blueprint
     03 Realisation
     04 Final Prep
     Project Management
     Technical Infrastructure
     Training and Education


3.1 01 Project Prep
Since the Project Prep phase is shared between the two projects then this folder is placed at the X:\SAP
level not within a specific project folder structure.

There are 2 sub-folders, namely ‘Draft’ and ‘Final’. As the names imply all draft documents are stored
within the Draft folder and all final, signed-off documenst are stored in ‘Final’.

                                                                                           Page 3 of 9

4 Document Identification
4.1 File Naming Convention
Each document in the project must be identified by a file name that describes the document contents.
There is no need for any structured naming convention since the document location in the Project
Library identifiers its use. Version control is managed inside all the documents where this is
appropriate.

The one exception to the above will be the naming convention for scenario scripts and will be identified
at a later date.

Each document must clearly identify the Author, Last Saved Date & Time, Version and Status (Final or
Draft). These attributes are captured in the MS Word Properties (File  Properties) and printed in the
document footer.


4.2 Version Control
Docment versioning is extremely important when documenst have many contributors in a shared
environment.

Document version numbers are utilised to indicate and control the status of the documents as they go
through a development and approval process.

Whole numbers indicate the approved document version, whilst the decimals indicate revisions/drafts to
that document. Thus,
      0.01 – 1st draft of the document
      0.06 – 6th draft of the document
      1.00 – 1st signed off and issued version of that document
      1.03 – 3rd draft amendment of the first signed-off document version
      2.00 - 2nd signed off and issued version of the document

The documents version is stored in the File/Properties attribute in MS Word, as well as being the suffix
to the document name, for example, Project Documentation Plan v0.02.doc


4.3 Distribution and Approval of Documents
The project deliverables have clearly identified approval routes. See the Distribution section on page 1
for required signatories.

Project documentation requires the SteeringCommittee sign off, whereas Team documentation, such as
individual Configuration, Test Scenarios or Business Process documentation require only team level
sign off.

                                                                                           Page 6 of 9
