Requirements Definition For Package Implementations


How do you go about defining the requirements of large package systems, particularly those with the all-encompassing scope of ERP, EAM, and CRM software, and still satisfy the needs to the project team, the user community, and executive management? It’s a balancing act rivaling the circus performer trying to keep all of the plates spinning at once. While it is difficult to say one aspect of a project plan is more important than another, accurately and completely defining the needs to be fulfilled by the software is critical to the overall success of the implementation and the longevity of software. This article outlines a logical process for defining the requirements and keeping the plates spinning.

product requirements  You Modify an Application Product , Are modifications bad? The answer is yes. A good rule of thumb is that an enhancement today will cost an additional 20% each time the enhancement has to be retrofitted to a new release. Assuming that the initial cost of enhancement was $50,000 and at least one new release or service pack is issued each year, over the 5-year period the true cost of the enhancement is $100,000. Consequently, when determining the cost/benefit, ROI, or payback period, you need to Read More

Product Developers Need to Shift to an All-Digital Mindset


Over the past several decades, processes to design and build cars, airplanes, and other products have typically followed a linear, sequential path. But the inefficient flow of information has frequently led to delays in product delivery. To remedy the situation, product development groups are shifting to a more holistic digital mindset using digital business models, processes, and tools. By embracing digital like never before, product developers can become fully integrated digital businesses and, therefore, well positioned to be more competitive.

product requirements  process typically started with product research, ideation, and concept development, followed by design and development, prototype and validation, leading to production, launch, operation, and, eventually, product retirement. Although widely used and straightforward, the linear approach to product development and design has started to reveal serious limitations. One of the most vexing and prevalent challenges has been the inefficient flow of information throughout this process. For example, the people Read More

Federal Contract Management and Vendors' Readiness Part Three: Meeting Federal Requirements


Companies that are not already offering the capabilities of meeting the exacting, stringent requirements of federal agencies will likely not be able to tap the recent surge in the federal and defense markets. Conversely, those vendors and their users--government contractors--who can deliver comprehensive solutions that satisfy the requirements of federal agencies are in the driver's seat to capture that market segment.

product requirements  face obsolescence from new product introductions, but, on the other hand, rotable parts and harvesting repaired components only add to the complexity and efficiency of this process. Lot and serial tracking capabilities, the so-called tail effectivity , permits users to tie every part (within part lists and diagrams) on a plane back to that one entity. Serial number (tail) effectivity for the aircraft and aerospace industry is enabled since within the astute ERP system, a table should carry information on Read More

Key Metrics for Monitoring New Product Development


Since our research-driven beginnings, Johnson & Johnson Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) has continually improved the new product development (NPD) process. Detailed process mapping has revealed three tiers of business metrics, starting with drivers and moving up through execution metrics to business performance metrics. When driver metrics improves, so does business performance. Six Sigma tools helps identify specific metrics at all tiers and the causality linkages among them. Each NPD process step at ASP results in a deliverable, and each deliverable relates to a trade-off triangle (cost-time-resources) and, ultimately, to investment dollars. To track performance, ASP calculates how actual NPD decisions and what-if scenarios affect deliverables, alter investment triangles, and thereby influence business results. ASP uses similar process and tools, including the investment triangles and Six Sigma QFD, to make idea management decisions. The IDweb real-time software environment enables both the NPD and idea management processes at ASP. By deploying the strategic planning, idea management, portfolio and pipeline management, process management, and resource management modules of IDweb, ASP has increased throughput by 20 percent and reduced cycle time by 40 percent.
