Best Practices and Standard Methodologies Deliver Results!

The HSB Solutions Product Life Cycle (PLC) is based on a simplistic and structured approach to software and systems engineering life cycles.

There are several different variations of the life cycle model used throughout the information technology world including:

Waterfall – Sequential or big-design-up-front (BDUF) models focus on complete and correct planning to guide large projects and risks to successful and predictable results.

Agile – Methodologies focus on light-weight processes which allow for rapid changes along the development cycle.

Spiral – Combines elements of both design and prototyping-in-stages in an effort to combine advantages of top-down and bottom-up concepts. The spiral model is intended for large, expensive, and complicated projects.

Depending on business and technical needs, HSB Solutions works with our customers to determine the most appropriate approach.

For example, if a customer requires fast application development, the HSB Solutions Project Life Cycle (PLC) will be tailored for the spiral life cycle approach by incorporating prototyping to facilitate rapid development.

 

Each phase of the HSB Solutions Product Life Cycle (PLC) produces standard assets which mark the transition from one phase to the next. A sampling of standard organizational assets commonly asked for and delivered to our clients upon request include the following:

Project Management Life Cycle Phase Assets defined:

HSB Solutions approaches information technology projects using best practices and standard methodologies.

These best practices have been set forth by industry standard organizations for coordinating, executing, and managing software and systems engineering projects.

Each technology project is developed and described through a life cycle. Life cycle defines the phases of a project from its inception, through planning, development, and delivery. These phases serve as a guide to project activity and provide a flexible but consistent way to conduct projects to a depth matching the scope of the project.

HSB Solutions life cycle methodologies are built from standard frameworks set forth by industry leaders such as the Project Management Institute (PMI).

By establishing a standard and repeatable methodology for each endeavor, HSB Solutions provides its customers with excellent service and delivers consistent, reliable results.

Five Life Cycle Phases to Project Delivery

For your project delivery, HSB Solutions develops both a Project Management Life Cycle and a Product Life Cycle (PLC) which interact with each other. This integrated methodology groups each life cycle phase into one of five phases:

Phase 1
This phase focuses on project startup. The activities result in:

defined project objectives
defined project scope
development of project requirements
availability of and access to key resources
identification of stakeholders
The completion of this phase results in formal authorization to start a project.

Phase 2
Planning activities are the foundation of the second phase. Analysis and design tasks help refine scope and ascertain the best approach for the Product Life Cycle (PLC). This phase sets expectations and formally defines the work effort and management.

Phase 3
Phase 3 involves processes utilized to finish the defined work. Project management efforts may decrease while product efforts increase. The majority of work is executed and monitored during this phase.

Phase 4
Regular measurement and monitoring of progress identifies variances from the project management plan so that corrective action can be taken when necessary to meet project objectives. Phase 4 encompasses implementation activities involved in deploying the new system or product.

Phase 5
Project closure includes activities that formally end the project or project phase and turn over the completed product to the customer. In addition, the project team evaluates and captures lessons learned.
