Product Scope Vs. Project Scope
Product scope versus project scope. Many people are confused by the two terms when they are very easy to remember and separate. Below I am providing the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) definitions along with my examples:
Product scope — the features and functions that characterize a product, service, or result.
Example — the cell phone screen is a feature. The cell phone power on is a function.
Project scope — the work performed to deliver a product, service or result with the specified features and functions. The project scope is sometimes viewed as including product scope.
Example — Producing a cell phone is the project. A cell phone’s scope contains the cell phone screen.
