30 pages MS Word. Use this System Boundary Document template (SBD) to establish the boundaries of an information technology (IT) project. Also includes Performance Measures 1 x worksheet and Process Flow Template 1 x Visio.

Use this SBD template to determine:

  • Business Needs – Ensure that requirements satisfy the business need. Has the System Boundary Document highlighted areas outside of scope due to budgetary or resource restrictions?
  • Feasibility – Can it meet requirements? Do you have the resources, experience, and budget to deliver this project?
  • Costs – Are costs realistic? Use the System Boundary Document to factor in all costs for human resources, consultants, software, training etc
  • Schedule – Is the schedule realistic? Are we over-optimistic on the delivery date? Have internal or political issues determined the end date and if so, how can we mitigate against this?
