Project Management and Process Improvement

  • project management

Our services are aimed at companies with software departments supporting industrial or manufactured products. Focusing on minimising the areas of project risk and maximising visibility and control to reduce cost and late delivery, our solutions are available at different levels from our Project Workshop through to a full outsourcing service.

Project Workshop - The purpose of the workshop is to match the techniques and tools that we have found effective to your situation and assess their potential impact on your projects. By working with you in the workshop format, rather than presenting you with a report after a study phase, you will have the opportunity to satisfy yourself that the tools and techniques suggested will impact the effectiveness of project control in your own environment.

Project Set-up - This service provides the expert advice and hands-on help that is required during the planning and set-up phase of a project, including identifying areas of risk and setting up techniques and tools to give visibility and control, particularly of software.

Project Assist - Within Project Assist a key component is our ability to focus on the key factors affecting visibility and control of software based projects. We provide ongoing hands on support to your in-house project managers helping them to maintain visibility and control.

Project Manage - This service provides a full project management service to our clients.

Tools - We can provide a range of low cost and effective tools to support project management including a risk management tool based on a risk management technique devised by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI).

  • software process improvement

Our services are aimed at companies with software departments supporting industrial or manufactured products. Focussing on helping companies to overcome the difficulties in implementing Software Process Improvement we help companies achieve reductions in operational failure, user dissatisfaction, cost and late delivery.

Process Workshop - The purpose of the workshop is to identify improvement actions that support your business objectives and match these to the software process improvement techniques that are most cost effective in small development teams. If your objective is to move towards a formal quality registration, we can include an overview of TickIT and the Capability Maturity Model (CMM). If IEC61508 impacts your business we can give an overview of the process related requirements of IEC61508.

Process SpirIT - This service focuses on process improvements that will provide a significant reduction in business risk in the near term with minimum overhead and introduce the spirit of process improvement into the culture of the company.

Process TickIT/CMM - We can tailor a package of support to help your company implement an improvement plan to meet TickIT or CMM requirements.
