Elaboration Phase



/ɪˌlæbəˈreɪʃən feɪz/


The second stage of the PIM implementation process, during which a more detailed project plan is created.

This second phase, which was preceded by the more general scoping phase, is characterized by diving deeper into the details and complexities of the project. At the end of this phase, the standards and guidelines for the implementation should all be in place and a product data model should be defined. This is the phase where the risks and difficulties are mapped out as much as possible and a project plan takes form.
