The greatest challenge to all project initiatives is effective communication, written as well as oral. A key stumbling block today are the tools available. Narrative requirements, flow charts, Venn and State diagrams, and Use cases. The issue, with the exception of narrative requirements, is that they are graphical tools superimposed with text. It is impossible to automate and intergrate this structure in any meaningfull way with project artifacts such as project plans, work breakdown structures, test matrices, and compliance templates.
The NWIS Blueprint is a revolutionary paridigm to this approach. Requirements are captured as structured text and a detail design generated therefrom. This structured text used in concert with XML can be used to automate all project artifacts and maintain their synchronization. This means that the CIO, Project Manager, and stakeholders have an accurate snapshot as of a point in time as to the health of any initiative.
