Consider, for example, the final project of the CS study programme at the Open University. The final project is split into two courses: VAF and AF. The VAF phase is the preparatory phase. The goal of this phase (and thus, the accompanying report) is to come up with a report that satisfies the following three goals:

  1. Clarify what the thesis project is about,
  2. Clarify what methodology will be followed, and why that methodology was chosen,
  3. Show that the obvious impediments to the research / methodology are surmountable.

The intended audience is (I) supervisors, (II) CS professionals. So the report should also be readable by CS professionals.
