Analysis, Feasibility and Specification - Case Study
The Business Problem
Nokia's Testing Department, within their UK-based Research & Development, wanted a module to interface to a mobile phone using a proprietary communications protocol. The software also had to integrate to an existing suite of in-house developed applications. The problem was that they had insufficient internal resource to carry out the development within the required timescales.
Systeme Ouvert was able to offer Nokia a tried and tested unique approach called Analysis, Feasibility, and Specification (AFS). AFS is a collaborative process that produces successively more defined specifications and therefore more accurate costs by iteratively:
- capturing business requirements
- assessing feasibility
- defining specification
- establishing costs
- reviewing with the client
- refining project scope.
Nokia was insistent that the software to be developed was well specified. AFS achieved this, which in turn led to Systeme Ouvert being able to offer Nokia a fixed price for the development and delivery of the solution.
