Notes

1. Entry-Conditions are used to decide if it is economic and safe to enter the main task of a Process. They are designed to:
• prevent entry into a task Process if it would be failure-prone
• cause us to remove obstacles to successful task Process execution
• provide a “Standard,” which we can continuously update whenever we get experience or knowledge to improve our Productivity.

2. All the Entry-Conditions must normally be met for permission to enter into the main Process task.

3. For any Work-Process, there are usually several Entry-Conditions, which should apply. They can be grouped in sets into “generic” and “specific” Entry-Conditions.

4. Entry-Conditions are one Type of Work-Process-Standard. They are one Means of “Process-Improvement” since they provide a mechanism for “organizational learning”. (Any experiences of Conditions that warn of impending problems can be noted in the form of Entry-Conditions. They are then available to anyone in an organization, even those people, who have not personally had the “bad” experience, which may have led to the establishment of the Entry-Condition.)

5. Note: Nov 1 2003 Gate is a Generic word for both Entry and Exit-Conditions. <-McConnell
