A project is a one-time undertaking whose objectives are realized within a fixed time frame. The German Institute for Standardization e.V.
(DIN) has defined the term project, its tasks, objectives and implementation in DIN standard 69901. Projects have a clear objective, they are fixed by fixed dates for the start of the project, by the project duration and the completion date. The tasks and performance of a project are cross-organizational and are subject to a specific procedure in which several departments and employees of the company, external consultants and suppliers can be involved. When it is a project or a process
