I'm required to research an industry engineering project and analyse the way the project was managed over the project life cycle.

Is there a resource where you can access real industry project's documentation involving the management of the project. such as projects plans, quality control docs, work breakdown structures, risk analysis etc?

    Those data is quite vital to companies. I assume they will not share it from an economic and a legal point of view. You might succeed if you focus on public organisations like NASA. You might find data from (quite) old projects... – Tob Apr 4 '17 at 18:52

    The Chaos Report has a lot of links and referenced material in it. – Venture2099 Apr 5 '17 at 12:26
  • Bad idea, you should always create documentation which takes into account your specifics and then just evolutionary adjust it. In such a way you shall avoid unnecessary details. Or format no one reads. – Alexander Averchenko Jun 5 '17 at 12:41

You might be able to find some of that information in the form of white papers [1] [2] [3]. However, as @Tob states in comment, the level of detail you seek is generally not released. As an alternative, you may be able to partner with a project manager or three. They should be able to describe and exemplify their documentation.
