Solution Delivery Process
Project delivery for any project is a critical component for success. Automated business processes and the systems that support them must meet strict regulatory requirements in an increasing number of areas. Accountability for transactional integrity, security of data, correctness of customer information, privacy, and version control, are not only important to production systems, but also apply to all aspects of the system development process.
Our project management and delivery process is designed to support all aspects of IT projects, from new system development to operations support.
The Softworld Project Management Model
Softworlds engagement model focuses on communication throughout the project process. Our project management methodology relies on established control procedures to provide senior management, project managers, and project teams with a transparent system of information flow, status, and other issues. This results in cost control, and avoiding cost over-runs and schedule slippage in projects.
Throughout the lifecycle of your IT project, the Softworld project managers focus on the following tasks:
- Estimation and Planning
- Project Tracking
Tasks planned and achieved
Tasks unplanned and achieved
Tasks planned and not achieved
- Issues requiring management support
- Issue Management
- Change Management
- Document Management
- Risk Management
Schedule and Budget Risk
Performance and Operational Risk
Functional and Usability Risk
To ensure the smooth completion and transition of your project deliverables, Softworld has developed a stringent quality assurance process.

QA tasks may be added or removed as part of the planning process by QA and/or project management throughout the project life cycle.

Softworld Project Methodology
Softworlds development methodology involves an iterative approach to achieving a quality solution in a timely manner. This is accomplished by continuously looping through requirements, design, implementation, documentation, delivery, and support stages to deliver complex projects as a series of releases. The overriding theme for each stage is producing a defect-free deliverable on schedule.
