  • Challenges, risks, other issues, etc.

Project CD

The project CD / DVD / Blu-ray / Memory stick should contain a README.txt file that lists the content of the CD and the locations of the files. Your project CD should contain all your documents and code.

  • README.txt
  • Project plan
  • Requirements specification (or the corresponding product backlog, use cases and other documents related to requirements management)
  • Test plan
  • Design documentation, database diagrams
  • Test report
  • Final report
  • Project poster
  • Code
  • Inspection / Review reports

And possibly

  • Project’s usability plan
  • UI specification
  • Heuristic evaluation reports
  • Usability test reports
  • User guide
  • Online help
  • Installation guidelines
  • Configuration files, makefile
  • Maintenance document
