Milestone:quampus question

Wed Jul 02, 2014 6:45 pm

You are the project manager and working on process of activity sequencing. Before you move on to the next step i.e. construction phase, you get to know that your company has a policy of having every software project reviewed and approved by the Architecture Review Board prior to the construction phase of a project. This is an example of what?
Scope Enhancement
Project integration

Approval by Architecture Review Board is an activity which has some duration. How a milestone can have duration?

Now here the question is not asking that this activity of review as such is called what rather its asking what the phenomena/situation described is known as..

What is a milestone?
"A significant point or event in a project, program, or portfolio."
Also in close phase/project process its described that end of phase/project is known as phase end, milestone or kill point. Situation described is end of one phase where we have kept architecture review before going to next construction phase.

You are right in saying milestone when scheduled is not having any duration. Think about climbing a mountain. You might have put some milestones on the way say point A, Point B and then final peak. Now the process of climbing the mountain to point A is not milestone rather phenomenon/situation that u achieved Point A is a milestone.

Hope its clear
