  5. 5. PRODUCT ENGINEERING GROUP
  6. 6. IT Solutions - An outlook • The evolution of the information technology industry over the past few decades – has witnessed the departure of the industry from some of the basics in engineering • The oft heard statement – “software engineering is not like other engineering disciplines” - has given the freedom to the industry to ignore the basics of engineering principles which has resulted in poor quality products, tremendous budget overruns, and worst, rework has become an acceptable practice • Any product development fundamentally needs an engineering design foundation – unfortunately fundamental concepts in computer science and core software technology basics have been ignored • Being compliant with processes and getting quality certifications (like CMMI) is fashionable – though these contribute little to the true quality of the end product that is being delivered to the customers – since process quality compliance has very little to do with PRODUCT DESIGN quality • According to us Software (or Technology) Product development is an engineering discipline and it should be dealt like one • Every IT project according to us should be considered as a PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT effort and one must apply the product engineering design principles to achieve highest quality, and appropriate business impact
  7. 7. Product Design and Engineering Services Product Ideation Technology Exploration Product Engineering Services Product Research Product Prototyping Human Factors Engineering Product Development Product Testing & & Deployment Quality Assurance Performance Technical Support & Engineering Documentation Maintenance Product Testing Services • We offer our product design and engineering expertise to build/enhance existing products of product companies • We use our patented product design and engineering processes to build these products as per the product specifications

Custom built product solutions for business automation  Business Process Models  Symptom Analysis  Requirements Engg.  Continuous Improvement  Process Analytics  Root Cause Analysis  Use Case Analysis Lifecycle Services  Process Innovation  Symptom Classification  Architecture Design  24x7 Application Support  Assess internal controls  Business Impact Analysis  Solution Design compliance for IT systems (Sarbanes-Oxley Act)  Enterprise Architecture  Implementation Analysis  Performance Engineering  Testing  Production Testing Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 • We offer our product engineering expertise to build custom products for business automation • We use our patented product design and engineering processes to build the products as per the customers business requirements • Currently, we have business process experts, and process templates for the following business verticals - Aviation and Fuel Industry, Business Process Management, Internet & Media, Shipping, BPO & Specialized Service Providers, Retail and Education
  9. 9. Why is Product Engineering critical in Custom Built Solutions? • The basic assumption in custom solutions that the business requirements are known (or can be frozen) is a MYTH – business requirements/features evolve just like in any product development ecosystem – one should be able to deal with this right at the foundation – hence we firmly believe that every IT project must be viewed as a PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT initiative and dealt with the same quality requirements as that of a PRODUCT initiative • Excellence in product engineering ensures the following • You get exactly what you want in the custom built product (Product Feature Precision) • You get a working product/solution within the time frame that has the right business impact, within the budget that you planned (Time-Money-Business Impact) • An end-product that is robust and of high quality (Durability) • This is invariant to the industry in which you operate since any business automation solution MUST satisfy the above basic requirements
  10. 10. Uniken Product Engineering Process - UNIPRO (Patent Pending) Requirements Analysis • We have patented/proprietory Product Engineering Processes Product Specifications Product Prototype • These processes have been developed by Domain Model Use Cases experts who have been working in the industry for more than 30+ years Class Diagram Interaction Map Test Plan Technology • Our product managers and product Sequence Diagram Architecture Test Cases engineers are trained in these processes Class Definition & and work towards getting UNIPRO Specification certifications Product Development • These certifications are given by the Integration & System Testing Product Engineering Excellence Group - Implementation Plan based on their compliance, contributions to User Acceptance Testing the process and on successful completion of product initiatives using these processes Production Deployment UNIPRO High Level Process Chart
