1.1 Waterfall Methodology The waterfall methodology is referred to as a linear-sequential life cycle model. It is very simple to understand and use. In a waterfall model, every and each phase must be completed and done before moving to the next phase.Which mean there is no return to the phase after moving to the next one (no iterations) due to that reason, this methodology doesn't fit Elaji project . 1.2 Agile Methodology Agile methodology is a combination of iterative and process that increment . Agile methods represent a relatively new approach to software development, becoming wide-spread in the last decade. agile development solution provides a good fit for mobile application development environment and proposed a new approach …show more content…
This ensures that only features of value to users are developed. RUP provides a well-defined structure for the lifecycle of a project and includes essential milestones where major decisions can be made about the project. RUP project consists of a life cycle . The lifecycle is divided into four phases of development. The phase are as follow: Inception, Elaboration, Construction and Transition . Each phase is organized into a number of iterations .And each of these iterations focus on producing technical deliverables that meet the certain criterion (objectives) of the phase before starting with the next phase. Finally, each phase will be reviewed in details . Elaji project is a mobile application software which requires iterations to add more details and make changes to the design during working without affecting the project .And a cycle in the development methodology is needed to insure that any phase can be reviewed and make changes to it if needed without affecting the project or making any problems. It appears that RUP methodology is the best one to fit the project due to those …show more content…
A business case is built for the project by gaining a good understanding of the project’s requirements and scope and getting to know the project stakeholders. At the end of the Inception Phase the project team will know whether or not to proceed with the project  The outcome of the Inception phase is : • A vision document: a general vision of the core project's requirements, key features, and main constraints. • A initial use-case model (10% -20%) complete). • An initial risk assessment. • A project plan, showing phases and iterations. • A business model, if necessary. One or several prototypes . LLD (Low level design document) :a sketch of the GUI is created.  So, defining the goals, requirements and scope for the project and specifying all the involved stakeholders and group them if needed is made by collecting important data from target users by asking them questionnaire .After that, an analysis of their answers is made to extract important information from those questionnaire which is an essential step to start the next phase. It involves carrying out detailed study of the target users requirements and arriving at the exact requirements of the proposed system. The target users who have been questioned are
Project feasibility is determined from the potential of the possible project for this company. A project should not be started unless the proper analysis procedures have been researched to determine if the project is feasible or not for the organization or company. Every aspect of the project must be researched in order to determine total feasibility. The Kudler Fine Foods Frequent Shopper program was projected to serve as a program that benefited loyal customers. This project is based on the daily account of every purchase that is made and tracked by custoemrs who sign up.
Iterative and incremental approach is a better way of developing requirements and modules as well. 4. Requirements provide a complete operating picture of the solution, which helps in taking correct decisions during initial stages of software development life cycle (SDLC). Iterative and Incremental Approach This approach allows us to make changes before it is too late.
Phase 2 is the logical phase that will map out the entities and attributes required for the tables of the DB using an ER- diagram. Tables are the foundation of your database application”(Caspio Online Help, 2015). Phase 3 is the physical design of the DB this will show tools needed to access the DB, such as how will the users access the DB and the hardware and software needed to make the DB accessible. The relationships among the tables and the structure will be the key to a good design application. When designing a DB one should be conscious of the future use of the DB.
1. Planning Before you want to jump right into planning, you want to meet with your client to talk about the project, you want to obtain certain information so that it can help you learn more about the project and whether or not the project should go ahead. Once you accept doing this project, you want to make sure that the client knows the requirements you’re looking for and whether they will meet your standard. For example, your payment estimates for future stages of the project.
• List all items of mechanical and electrical equipment to be purchased for the proposal project • Identify purchase price for each item • Calculate the total price 5.3 Category “Man power resources”: What is the staff time required to perform the project? • Identify full and part time employees involved in the project • Estimate the number of working hours they will work on the project •
the project, this will be include creating the interfaces, building the application logic, creating the database and integrating all the three tiers to meet the functional requirements laid out in the project specification. Testing phase – 1 week This stage involves unit and integration testing of all the modules implemented in the previous stage following the test plans laid out in design phase. Test results are to be created to demonstrate the effectiveness. Testing will focus on security, performance, usability and accessibility of the
This approach centers on people, communications, the anticipated product and its flexibility. The concept of this approach is similar to that of the traditional management approach: generating plans and requirements, evolving the anticipated product, incorporating it with other products as required then testing it and debugging technical hitches if any is found, then lastly fitting it for use (Rose, 2010). In this approach, as a replacement for focusing on the phases all at once like it is done in the traditional approach, the entire project is fragmented into smaller segments known as scrums after which the scrums are taken as smaller projects and dealt with according to the traditional
Ronald Reagan You arrive at your next duty station and observe that Airmen are cutting corners to accomplish tasks and morale is the lowest you have ever witnessed. The Airmen look for your leadership to make things better. To be successful in times like these, leaders must exhibit both visionary and ethical leadership. Ronald Reagan personified visionary and ethical leadership during his tenure as the 40th President of the United States. His application of visionary and ethical leadership principles are relevant to me as I seek to develop and to guide future Air Force leaders.
A development methodology is the framework that is used to structure and plan and the development of the system, it is also used to control the progress of development. Many different types of framework exist and they have each been adapted over time and each has different strengths and weaknesses. Some
It is important to emphasize that these challenges were brought about by poorly defined goals and the scope was usually unclear. This meant the projects usually tended to go beyond the estimates as the project developers tried to fix newly developed ideas in to the development process. the phase gate model was developed to give an outline of the project development process to offer solutions for managing newly launched
12. Overreliance on Repeatable Processes Companies may spend years creating an enterprise project management (EPM) methodology. The intent is that the methodology will be used on all projects for all customers and from cradle to grave. Having blind faith in the expectation that repeatable processes will solve problems is a mistake.
Today we know that using an Agile Method is not for every type of project. For projects where change is not so frequent, a traditional model maybe more useful. But where projects are expected to face a lot of change, i.e. scope creep, an Agile Method would be more of an appropriate option. There is nothing we can do to control or stop the requirements from changing. This is why planning and allowing time to make changes for these specific requirements in a project is critical.
Number of Interfacing Business Processes and Automated systems. The plan set out for the stakeholder group which engage in complicated and overlying business processes within Griffith University will be different from the stakeholders whose processes are more autonomous or separate. It is common for most Stakeholders not to be involved in the project requirement training but if the training is related to their fields they may be more likely to attend or participate. (BABOK, 2009)
