Project Management System
As the practice shows the development of software products is impossible without systematic approach. Various developers are constantly trying to find the best possible ways of solutions and approaches in the organization of project management systems. Various solutions that could satisfy the arising needs were offered, but they were not optimal.The other problem is that programmers are often working remotely from the customer and it is necessary to find a reliable tool and a way to manage and control development.
As a result of trials and errors there have been discovered some of the most successful and optimal systems for the development of various software products, regardless of their complexity and geographic location of the staff. We can say even more ... A conceptual framework was developed and adopted, that includes a number of different methods which are connected with some agile principles. agile principles.
These methodologies are aimed at minimizing the risk by reducing the development to the series of short cycles called iterations, which usually last from two to six weeks. Each iteration looks like itself as a miniature software project, and includes all the tasks necessary for the issuance of the mini-increment of functionality: planning, analysis of requirements, design, coding, testing and documentation. Although a single iteration as usual insufficient to produce a new version of the product, it is understood that a flexible software design is ready for release at the end of each iteration. At the end of each iteration, the command carries out revaluation of the development priorities. Agile-methods focus on direct face to face communication. As a minimum it also includes «the customers» (product owner - the customer or his authorized representative determines the requirements for the product; the project manager, business analyst or client can perform this role).The office may also include testers, interface designers, technical writers and managers.
We use such techniques as:
