Project Definition

Abstract

This chapter gives the definition of a project and explains the four main criteria given in the project management triangle, i.e., Time-bound projects, Cost-bound projects, Quality/Performance-bound projects, and Safety-bound projects. The importance of safety is emphasized by placing it in the centre of the triangle. The effect of ignoring safety is discussed by citing examples of disasters caused by lax safety procedures.
