    Hi Tim. OK so this may seem like a silly question that shouldn't even be asked (and I apologize if it is), but is there an actual document called "Product Scope"? The closest thing I can think of are the Project Scope Statement (which contains the Product Scope Description and is a part of the Scope Baseline), the Requirements Documentation (which contains the functional requirements of the product), the Project Charter (which has the high-level description of the product) and the Statement of Work.

    This is not a silly question. You are facing a major issue - is the question looking for the specific document, or is the question asking for a specific component of the document? The only options are Product scope (a piece of the Scope Statement) and the Scope baseline. The word "documents" is misleading.

    Take a look at the contents of the Scope Statement, and you'll find it references both the Project and Product Scope. Project As a review, Product Scope describes the characteristics of the product and is derived from the requirements, and Project Scope is the work required to create the product. "The box will be black; we will paint the outside surfaces of the box with #164 matte black."
