In project management, the acceptance criteria, Acceptance Criterias, are listed as conditions that should promote the acceptance of a project
. The acceptance criteria must be developed in advance of the project and all project participants must agree to them. Normally, the acceptance criteria with their specific details should be explained before the start of the project, taking into account a precisely elaborated timeline to ensure that all project stakeholders are on the same level of knowledge.
The many acceptance criteria accepted by the project participants should be prioritized by the project participants whenever possible. If certain acceptance criteria are not or only partially fulfilled during project execution, they must be readjusted or assigned a different status, such as conditional acceptance.
