What is a Project Methodology?
It defines how we organize and complete your project. We apply
best practices recommended by the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)
that are appropriate for each project. For software programming and web site development, we apply best practices from
the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
What are the steps or phases in my software project?
Requirements Analysis / Discovery
We will work with you to analyze your needs, propose solutions, and
document them in a Requirements Specification. The agreed upon
Requirements are then used as a basis for the project.
We will design a system solution that will meet your needs listed
in the Requirements Specification.
We will develop the database and programs that conform to our design.
We will validate that the developed solution complies with the Requirements
For custom software, we will implement the developed solution into your production
environment. For web sites, we will publish your web site as
specified in the Requirements Specification.
We will resolve all issues that are identified during the period
immediately following implementation.
What will you do to manage my project to successful completion?
We will define what needs to be accomplished (the project scope)
and develop a plan of action to accomplish it (the project plan).
We will integrate the people and other resources to complete your
Monitor and Control
We will monitor progress, identify variances from the plan, and recommend
corrective action. We will facilitate communication, change control,
scope control, cost control, quality control, and risk management.
We will formalize acceptance that brings the project to an orderly close.
