Project Management & Control
Redshift Designs has developed a robust process for design and development of solutions. The process encompasses all activities required to plan, design, develop, deploy, operate and manage the solution. For the effective management of a project, the complete process has been divided into six major activity areas: -
Quality Assurance and Testing
- Project Management
- Project Life Cycle
- Configuration Management
- Change Control
- Software Engineering
- Quality Assurance
Redshift Designs has a well-defined roadmap to reviews and audits various activities performed during the entire project life cycle including the Software Testing Phase. The software testing process incorporates the Planning, Implementation and Quality Assurance phases. Testing is performed at several points in the Software Development life cycle, as an application is constructed component by component into a functioning system. By following this rigorous testing methodology with reviews at various levels and sign offs from the client, Redshift Designs is able to deliver quality solutions to the Client.
Client engagements fall under 2 major types:
usually the preferred method in more complex projects that lead to strategic, long-term engagements with clients.
2) Time & Material:
usually the preferred route if Redshift Designs is not a proven partner to a client. It is usually used as an account entry strategy but is also the preferred method for e- Consulting where the engagements are short and the rates are high.
These engagements are then executed in 2 ways:
1) On site:
usually the preferred method if the engagement is short (less than 3 months) and there is a high degree of change requests anticipated or if the risk profile of the client is deemed high.
2) Offshore development:
preferred with strategic clients who use Redshift Designs as a preferred development partner. Also the preferred route for long-term development contracts. Clearly, combinations of all of the above are possible.
Redshift Designs has successfully executed a number of projects from its offshore development centre. These includes:
- Distributed customised projects
- Product development
- Package customisation
- Quality Assurance and Testing for our client's products
- Offshore software maintenance
