Project Implementation Methodology

Introduction:

As well as supplying out-of-the-box solutions, Docuspace also offers Application Integration services.

Whether you require assistance with integration of our out-of the box solutions with your existing systems, build an interface from our product range or make use of our Application Integration services, we can customise a solution for you and integrate it with your exiting systems.

At Docuspace we take a systematic approach to application development, implementation, deployment and integration. We work with you, as your RFID Technology Partner.

At each stage of our interaction with you, we present you with a project plan and proposal for your approval. Once the proposal is ‘signed off’ and project plan agreed, we execute it and then review its outcomes with you. At all stages of the project you know what is happening, what you can expect and what the benefits are. At all phases of our relationship we focus on minimising risk and providing you with excellent service.

Typically most projects follow a similar process:

Identification:

To begin with we need to know “what you want to do” — what initiative you have in mind or ‘where it hurts’ — what is the problem your intending to solve. We analyse your current processes and develop a new process model applying the benefits of automated data capture using RFID technology. With this information we develop a business case based on the new process model that demonstrates your potential return on investment.

Scoping and discovery

Project scoping involves a detailed analysis of your current operational processes and practices and what other processes, procedures or systems will be effected by the introduction of new processes. The aim of this stage is to develop a project plan for the strategic application of RFID technology through phased integration.

Specification

Once we’ve developed a strategic application plan we can develop a specification for the resources required to design an application model.

Design

Design is based on specifications arising out of the application model that reflect the requisite system inputs and outputs and form the basis for functional specifications that define the system and data flow.

Implementation

Once the design phase is complete, a project implementation plan is developed based on these functional specifications; the internal architecture of the system is designed and presented to you as a prototype

Development and Testing

As soon as the prototype is developed it is tested at your site using simulated data for accuracy, and compatibility with other data delivery systems.

Each module goes through the same quality assurance process and your involvement is encouraged to refine the application further. Once the testing period is completed it is approved by you and is ready for release as a pilot.

Deployment and Review

Upon the release of a software version, a fully functionally system is installed and deployed at your site as a pilot project and continues to be tested in a live operating environment. After an agreed period the application is reviewed again for any bugs and its functionality based on the initial brief.

Phased Integration

Once the pilot project is signed off, the remaining phases of the application installation are systematically executed in accordance with the project plan.

Training

We will train key people at your site and provide them with the tools to train others. Training is assured by the instructor and trainee alike and signed off by both and their supervisor. This is to ensure that all personnel using the technology are confident and capable performing the required tasks.

Feedback provided by the trainee as to the quality of the training is also required to ensure continual quality improvement of training services.

Change management

Implementing new systems usually requires a change to operational procedures. For the best results a Change Management Plan is required. The keys to change management are communication, good planning, process validation and review. This ensures the change management process is seamlessly managed and best practice principles are applied.

Support

Once the project is complete we provide a series of options for support based on you anticipated needs. See the support section for more information.

Documentation

Once the project is completed, we provide you with a version controlled document in a PDF file format. Any further updates to the software or modifications are recorded as part of the version control policy.
