Project Quality Plan Project Quality Plan Presentation Transcript

  • PROJECT MODELS FOR SYSTEM UPGRADE BY: JASON E LEWIS DATE: 9/04/2009 Comparing Project Management Models & Methodologies
  • Project Summary
    • Discussion o f comparing Project Management Models for the Email systems upgrade
    • Discussion of a variety of Project Management Methodologies
    • Discussion Models
      • Dynamic Systems Development Model
      • Maturity Model
      • Prince2 Model
      • Waterfall Model
      • Spiral Model
    • Project Summary/ Problem Statement
      • Identified email system business interruptions
      • Identified the need for the reduction of redundant systems
    • Focus
      • New email standards
      • Upgrade of the email system
      • One email system
    • Scope
      • Consolidation of the five email systems
      • Users will have both LAN and Remote access to email
      • User PCs will be upgraded to accommodate the new email system
      • Take advantage of the opportunity to develop collaboration among the 12 departments
      • Maximize coat savings potential by generating direct coat savings
  • Dynamic Systems Development Model (DSDM )
    • DSDM was developed in the U.K. in the mid 1990’s.
    • Boast of being better than the Agile techniques.
    • Philosophy that nothing is built perfect.
    • Believes software is a exploratory endeavor.
    • Uses nine principles and five phases.
          • Active user involvement
          • Empowered teams that the authority to make decisions
          • Focus on frequent delivery of products
          • Fitness of business as the essential criterion for acceptance of deliverables
          • Iterative and incremental development to ensure convergence on accurate business solutions
          • Reversible changes during development
          • Requirements that are baselined at a high level
          • Integrated testing throughout the life cycle
          • Collaboration and cooperation between all stakeholders
  • Maturity Model
    • Model was formed t refine an organization software development process.
    • Methodology is to optimize the development process.
    • It is used by DOD and is promoted by SEI and was founded in 1984.
    • Easily establishes the framework for continuous process improvement.
    • Has five maturity levels and operates on the following.
        • Initial Level
        • Repeatable Level
        • Defined Level
        • Managed Level
        • Optimizing Level
  • Prince2 Model
    • Prince2 is a project management Methodology that is process-based.
    • Has Eight high level processes.
        • Directing a Project
        • Planning
        • Starting up a Project
        • Initiating the Project
        • Controlling a Stage
        • Managing Product Delivery
        • Managing Stage Boundaries
        • Closing a Project
  • WaterFall Model
    • Waterfall model is a methodology for software engineering.
    • Considered a classic approach to the systems development life cycle.
    • The model is a development method that is rigid and linear.
    • Often falls short of expectations as it does not embrace the inevitable changes and revisions.
    • Difficult to make changes during testing.
    • Alternatives to the Waterfall model include
        • JAD – creates a shorter development time and greater customer
        • satisfaction
        • RAD - is a variation on JAD, creates an application more quickly through
        • strategies that include fewer formal methodologies
  • Spiral Model
    • Extends the Waterfall model by prototyping and is preferred over Waterfall.
    • Has Nine high-level steps
        • System requirements needs to be defined in large detail.
        • A preliminary design is created for the implementation.
        • First prototype for the new system is constructed off of the preliminary design.
        • At the second prototype evolves four steps.
            • Evaluate the first prototype
            • Define the requirements of the second stage
            • Plan and design the second prototype
            • Construct and test the second prototype
        • Sponsor can choose to stop the project due to high risk factors shown during prototype.
        • The prototype is evaluated in the same way as the previous prototype
        • The preceding steps are iterated until the customer is satisfied
        • The final system is constructed based on the refined prototype
        • The final system is thoroughly evaluated and tested
  • Benefits of Implementing Spiral Model
    • Easy to implement
    • Customizable for company size
    • Implementation in months not years
    • Increase Profitability
    • Reduce paperwork
    • Ability to track business
    • Generate sales leads
    • Technical support available
