Begins with Q: The quality management plan describes how the project management team will implement the performing organization's quality policy. The quality management plan is a component or a subsidiary plan of the project management plan.

Begins with R: The time in calendar units, between the data date of the project schedule and the finish date of a schedule activity that has an actual start date. This represents the time needed to complete a schedule activity where the work is in progress.
Request for Information
Begins with R: A type of procurement document whereby the buyer requests a potential seller to provide various pieces of information related to a product or service or seller capability.

Request for Quotation (RFQ)
Begins with R: A type of procurement document used to request price quotations from prospective sellers of common or standard products or services. Sometimes used in place of request for proposal and in some application areas, it may have a narrower or more specific meaning.
Request Seller Responses [Process]
Begins with R: The process of obtaining information, quotations, bids, offers, or proposals, as appropriate.
Requested Change [Output/Input]
Begins with R: A formally documented change request that is submitted for approval to the integrated change control process. Contrast with approved change request.
Begins with R: A condition or capability that must be met or possessed by a sti.stem, product, service, result, or component to satisfy a contract, standard, specification, or other
formally imposed documents
Begins with f: Requirements include the quantified and documented needs, wants, and expectations of the sponsor, customer, and other stakeholders.
Begins with R: A provision in the project management pkm to mitigate cost and/or schedule risk. Often used with a modifier (e.g., management reserve, contingency reserve) to provide further detail on what types of risk are meant to be mitigated. The specific meaning of the modified term varies by application area.
Reserve Analysis [Technique]
Begins with R: An analytical technique to determine the essential features and relationships of components in the project management plan to establish a reserve for the schedule duration. budget, estimated cost, or,ftmds for a project.
Residual Risk
Begins with R: A risk that remains after risk responses have been implemented.
Begins with R: Skilled human resources (specific disciplines either individually or in crews or teams), equipment, services, supplies, commodities, materiel, budgets, or funds.
Resource Breakdown Structure (RBS)
Begins with R: A hierarchical structure of resources by resource category and resource type used in resource leveling schedules and to develop resource-limited schedules, and which may be used to identify and analyze project human resource assignments.
Resource Calendar
Begins with R: A calendar of working days and nonworking days that determines those dates on which each specific resource is idle or can be active, Typically defines resource specific holidays and resource availability periods. See also project calendar.
Resource-Constrained Schedule
Begins with R: See resource-limited schedule.
Resource Histogram
Begins with R: A bar chart showing the amount of time that a resource is scheduled to work over a series of time periods. Resource availability may be depicted as a line for comparison purposes. Contrasting bars may show actual amounts of resource used as the project progresses.
Resource Leveling [Technique]
Begins with R: Any form of schedule network analysis in which scheduling decisions (start and finish dates) are driven by resource constraints (e.g., limited resource availability or difficult-to-manage changes in resource availability levels).
Resource-Limited Schedule
Begins with R: A project schedule whose schedule activity, scheduled start dates and scheduled finish dates reflect expected resource availability. A resource-limited schedule does not have any early or late start or finish dates. The resource-limited schedule total float is determined by calculating the difference between the critical path method late finish date` and the resource-limited scheduled finish date. Sometimes called resource-constrained schedule. See also resource leveling.
Resource Planning
Begins with R: See activity resource estimating.
Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM) [Tool]
Begins with R: A structure that relates the project organizational breakdown structure to the work breakdown structure to help ensure that each component of the project's scope of work is assigned to a responsible person/team.
Begins with R: An output from performing project management processes and activities. Results include outcomes (e.g., integrated systems, revised process, restructured organi_ation, tests, trained personnel, etc.) and documents (e.g., policies, plans, studies, procedures, specifications, reports, etc.). Contrast with product and service. See also deliverable.
Begins with R: A portion of a contract payment that is withheld until contract completion to ensure full performance of the contract terms.
Begins with R: Action taken to bring a defective or nonconforming component into compliance with requirements or specifications.
Begins with R: An uncertain event or condition that, if it occurs, has a positive or negative effect on a project's objectives. See also risk category and risk breakdown structure.
Risk Acceptance [Technique]
Begins with R: A risk response planning teclnniquue* that indicates that the project team has decided not to change the project management plan to deal with a risk. or is unable to identify any other suitable response strategy.
Risk Avoidance [Technique]
Begins with R: A risk response planning technique* for a threat that creates changes to the project management plan that are meant to either eliminate the risk or to protect the project objectives from its impact. Generally, risk avoidance involves relaxing the time, cost, scope, or quality objectives.
Risk Breakdown Structure (RBS) [Tool]
Begins with R: A hierarchically organized depiction of the identified project risks* arranged by risk category and subcategory that identifies the various areas and causes of potential risks. The risk breakdown structure is often tailored to specific project types.
Risk Category
Begins with R: A group of potential causes of risk. Risk causes may be grouped into categories such as technical, external, organizational, environmental. or project management. A category may include subcategories such as technical maturity, weather, or aggressive estimating. See also risk breakdown structure.

The risk management plan can be informal and broadly framed, or formal and highly detailed, based on the needs of the project. Information in the risk management plan varies by application area and project size. The risk management plan is different from the risk register that contains the list of project risks, the results of risk analysis, and the risk responses.
Risk Management Planning [Process]

The risk register details all identified risks, including description, category, cause, probability of occurring, impact(s) on objectives, proposed responses, owners, and current status. The risk register is a component of the project management plan.
Risk Response Planning [Process]
Begins with R: The process of developing options and actions to enhance opportunities and to reduce threats to project objectives.
