Lets first see the definition of Requirements Baseline, Project Scope, and Product Scope:

Requirements Baseline as per Business Analysis Practice Guide:
The requirements baseline is the boundary that contains all of the approved requirements for the project, project phase, iteration, increment, release, or any other part of a project.

PMBOK 5 definition of Project and Product Scope:
Product scope. The features and functions that characterize a product, service, or result; and/or
Project scope. The work performed to deliver a product, service, or result with the specified features and functions. The term project scope is sometimes viewed as including product scope.


The project scope defines all the work you do to develop the product. All the tasks and steps which you do to deliver the Product included in project scope. Training, resource allocation, demo meetings are some examples of Project Scope. AND

Product Scope includes features and functions of the product. If we take the example of a JOB site: Searching, maintaining profile, applying the job, upload jobs etc could be the example of Product scope.

Relationship between Requirements Baseline, Project Scope and Product Scope

All the approved requirements are included in the Requirements Baseline forms the project and product scope. The more approved requirements there are, the larger the product scope and the project scope. - This shows the direct relationship between requirement baseline, project scope, and Product scope.
