An Introduction To Object Oriented Analysis

Consequently, systems developed using the traditional approaches to software development are rigid and difficult to change. It’s often necessary to modify a large number of parts of the system just to implement a single, small change. The traditional approaches to software development are effective only in situations where requirements are specific and unlikely to change over time.

Process Improvement: Using The Control Chart

Process Improvement: Using The Control Chart

A control chart can be used to monitor processes for problems and to determine whether a process has become stable enough. As an analysis tool, it can be used to detect when problems occur and propose possible causes and solutions via an extensive root cause analysis exercise.

The Relevance Of Functional Decomposition Diagrams

The Relevance Of Functional Decomposition Diagrams

Some processes, problems, and projects appear complicated, yet their complexity disappears as soon as one takes a closer look and breaks them down into simpler parts. This is the objective of functional decomposition - to clarify how the overall functionality emerges from the interaction between individual components in increasing detail.

Relevance Of The Problem Tracking Technique

Relevance Of The Problem Tracking Technique

The key importance of problem tracking is seldom evident when there are just two or three problems to overcome at the same time; it doesn’t take much to stay organized in such situations. It gets much more complicated, however, when the number of problems increases, especially in the early phases of software development projects.

Structured Walkthrough Sessions: Why Bother?

Structured Walkthrough Sessions: Why Bother?

The most obvious benefit of gathering stakeholders with different backgrounds in a single room is the increased chance of spotting defects in requirements before development or implementation begins. Structured walkthrough sessions also raise awareness about the different development or maintenance methodologies.
