Purpose The PRINCE2 Product Status Account Template provides information about the state of products within defined limits. The limits can vary. For example, the report could cover the entire project, a particular stage, a particular area of the project, or the history of a specific product. It is particularly useful if the Project Manager wishes to confirm the version number of products.
Contents The format following on page 3 is an example of the type of information the Project Manager may request as a Status Account on a Product or set of Products.  Depending on the purpose of the request the Project Manager may request more or less information.  This format would be repeated for each product included in the request.
Advice The PRINCE2 Product Status Account Template is derived from the Configuration Item Records and the Stage Plan.
A Product Status Account can take a number of formats, including: Document, spreadsheet or report from a database; Output from a project management tool.The following quality criteria should be observed:

  • The details and dates match those in the Stage Plan.
  • The product name is consistent with the product breakdown structure and the name in the Configuration Item Record.
