You are conducting an electrical network and fixtures installation project. During project execution, your quality auditors highlighted some defects in the work performed. You analyze the situation and determine that these are genuine defects that need to be fixed. You submit a change request, which is approved and the team performs the necessary defect repairs. Which of the following is incorrect regarding this scenario?
A.) You have followed the change control system
B.) You have performed the Monitor and Control Project Work process
C.) You have performed the Integrated Change Control process
D.)You should document these defect repairs in the Project Management Plan
Question provided by The PM Exam Simulator: www.pm-exam-simulator.com
Answer & Explanation
Correct Answer: D)
We are looking for the statement that is NOT true:
> Because you were able to identify the defects, you have performed the Monitor and Control Project Work process.
> Similarly, as you were able to remove the defects, you have performed the Integrated Change Control process as well.
> As you have performed both processes, you have followed the change control system.
All of these choices are true about the situation.
The only statement that is not true is the fact that details of defect repairs are not documented in the Project Management Plan (this detail is documented in the Change Request Log.)
