About Us: Methodology & Documentation “Rightsizing”
Process is important, and when you are evaluating solution
partners, it should be a part of your due diligence. That said, many companies
in our industry offer “one size fits all” processes that are just not
appropriate for every project. Perhaps there are as many who are experts at
delivering paper, but can’t deliver working systems.
Customers are different; problems have differing scopes and
complexities. The wrong process applied to your project can easily make it take
longer and cost more, whether that’s a rigorous process applied to a small
project or a lax process applied to a large one.
Our developers and project managers average over 15 years of
product development experience; most of it creating packaged software products
that have to work right when shipped. We’ve worked with many methodologies;
some good, some bad. Our solution? We work with you to determine the right
process, deliverables, and documentation for your project. We’ll provide
options, discuss relative merits, recommend an approach, and then do what you
want us to do for your project, as long as we are sure that it will result in
Regardless of methodology, we always make use of design patterns.
Many problems in software development are similar, and design patterns
incorporate best practice solutions for these problems.
Methodology and Documentation are never more important than during
the requirements definition phase of a project. Our commitment is to drill down
to the level of detail necessary to provide accurate estimates for time and
cost and to minimize rework. We do this through a process of iteratively
developed requirements documents.
Concerned that you don’t know exactly what you need? It’s a rare
occasion when a customer has put in enough rigorous thought to thoroughly
describe a project. We feel that our highest value comes from working with you
to determine the requirements for a successful deployment.
