 Process tailoring is a key capability to deal with variance in development projects and programs. It allows process authors to define rules when projects or programs can deviate from the standard processes. Process tailoring is a key capability to deal with variance in development projects and programs.

 Finally, no set of tailoring rules can ever contain every possible variation. For that reason, every process needs to be reviewed after applying the rules-based tailoring and it must be possible to **perform manual tailoring adjustments**. Finally, no set of tailoring rules can ever contain every possible variation.

 When building a multi-level process architecture (see [[:​73:​process_architecture|more detail here]]), defining the tailoring dependencies at the right module level is key. If you define process areas as separate process modules, some questions might affect the tailoring in several process areas at the same time. For example, the selection of a safety integrity level or development assurance level might impact the requirements management as well as the design and validation process areas. Defining this question in each of the modules would result in the same question being asked multiple times, if those modules are integrated into one workspace. When building a multi-level process architecture (see [[:​73:​process_architecture|more detail here]]), defining the tailoring dependencies at the right module level is key.

 To prevent this, common questions that affect multiple process modules should be defined in a process module, that is integrated into every process area module, e.g. "​Common Elements"​. Each module can then define its own tailoring dependencies to those common questions. When the process modules are integrated into one workspace, the tailoring dependencies will be merged into a single question again. When the tailoring assistant is run, common questions will only be asked once, but affect elements from all integrated process areas. To prevent this, common questions that affect multiple process modules should be defined in a process module, that is integrated into every process area module, e.g. "​Common Elements"​.

 Note that the defined tailoring dependencies will work in reverse when the mode is changed, so you might need to completely redefine them after changing the mode. Note that the defined tailoring dependencies will work in reverse when the mode is changed, so you might need to completely redefine them after changing the mode.
