  1. 1. James Falasco Project Management Experience 6411 Fieldcrest Lane Sachse, Texas 619-852-5288 Mobile 972-575-8663 Home Introduction Certifying embedded software to meet project requirements can be challenging and expensive. You need the best tools to simplify and to shorten the process while reducing overall costs and increasing overall quality. The tools are necessary, but by themselves they are insufficient. You also need an approach, a process, to tie the tools together. The process will incorporate architecture, providing structure and procedures. With the addition of best practice guidelines gained from experience, the process becomes a full-blown methodology. You will also need support to help in the transition to a new toolset and a new methodology. besides training, support can customize the tools for your specific needs, help to integrate legacy code, and provide expertise with the use of the tools. So a total solution is comprised of the triad: software tools, a methodology, and support. 1
  2. 2. Figure 1 Solution Triad - Software Tools, a Methodology, and Support I have effectively used the defined Solution Triad to facilitate project management responsibilities that I have been involved with. Representative project Areas include the vertical markets of video phone design, vehicles ; both commercial and military and industrial automation. I favor the traditional “requirements v” approach to establish the foundation of my project management strategy. I have led project management teams to develop products as well as system integration efforts. Project team management utilized techniques from such methodologies as QED and TRIZ. Managing and preserving intellectual property is one of the key aspects of project management today. In a technical world where there are hundreds of ways in which a potential product/system integration effort can be rolled out the way in which your organizations I.P. can be packaged and transferred as “value add” or protected can become a huge corporate advantage. 2
  3. 3. Keeping The Process Simple Here is a close look at my favorite project kick off approach. Define things in the below fashion. Figure 1 Traditional V Process Software Verification & Validation (V&V) is a system engineering process for evaluating the correctness and quality of a software product throughout its life cycle. It employs a variety of software engineering methods, techniques, and tools. Unintentionally overlooked during the beginning of a product’s life cycle, the costs of V&V rise dramatically the longer it is deferred. V&V is not easy because • Software applications are numerous, novel, and complex. • Each application has unique design elements and a large number of potential states or modes. • Although software technology is essentially unlimited in its applicability to real world problems, it is extremely sensitive to minor details in program and/or data. • Software products are difficult to specify with precision and difficult to test exhaustively. Often they are engineered with immature processes. I have effectively the various components of product teams including design , marketing and customer support. These teams ranged in size from 5 to 15 people and in many instances were spread across multiple locations ,sometimes internationally. 3
