Use this template to describe any dependencies your project may have. Dependencies can be almost any sort of link or association in which change in one area may cause change elsewhere. For example in the case of software project one programming module may rely on other modules so that change to one will cause different results in others. Schedules often have many different dependencies in that failure to meet an early deadline may have ripple effect throughout the entire schedule. complex project may have many dependencies on outside entities including the processing of permits and contracts stability of political and economic states timely delivery of imported materials and so forth. For construction projects even weather may be dependency. Introduce the topic of dependencies for your project here and describe in general how your project may be affected by changes. Then discuss specific dependencies below. Description of Dependency #1 e. g. " Automated mail routine draws from customer database" or " County funds are dependent on local real estate values. " Describe how the dependency affects your project. For example using the example dependencies cited above you might say " Our automated mail routine sends out ads on quarterly basis using all the address records in the customer database. Thus the effectiveness of our bulk mailings will depend on the accuracy of the customer records. Jon Stevens manages our customer database. " Or " Ten years ago county funds increased dramatically because local real estate values skyrocketed. However last year our funds were cut by 20% because of the decrease in tax revenues from foreclosed properties and we had to adjust funding for this project accordingly. Thus our ability to fund this county project may change from year to year. " Include all relevant information such as how changes are communicated and the names of responsible parties. Description of Dependency #2 Describe how the dependency affects your project.
