OptiStaff Workforce Optimization Solution Methodology
1. System/Information Engineering
OptiStaff will establish the requirements for all system elements
and then allocate some subset of these requirements to software.
This system view is essential when the software must interface with
other elements such as hardware, people and other resources. System
is the basic and very critical requirement for the existence of
software in your company. If the system is not in place, the system
will be engineered and put in place. In some cases, to extract the
maximum output, the system will be re-engineered. Once the ideal
system is engineered or tuned, the OptiStaff development team will
study the software requirements for the system.
2. Software Requirement Analysis
This process is also known as feasibility study. In this phase, a
Professional Services analyst will visit you and study your system.
The analyst will investigate the need for possible software
automation in the given system. By the end of the feasibility study,
the OptiStaff Professional Services team furnishes a document that
holds the different specific recommendations for the candidate
system. It also includes the personnel assignments, costs, project
schedule, target dates etc. The requirement gathering process is
focused specially on software. To understand the nature of the
program(s) to be built, the Professional Services analyst must
understand the information domain for the software, as well as
required function, behavior, performance and interfacing. The
essential purpose of this phase is to find the need and to define
the problem that needs to be solved.
3. System Analysis and Design
In this phase, the software development process, the software’s
overall structure and its nuances are defined. In terms of the
client/server technology, the number of tiers needed for the package
architecture, the database design, the data structure design etc.
are all defined in this phase. A software development model is thus
created. Analysis and Design are very crucial in the whole
development cycle. Any glitch in the design phase could be
challenging to solve in later stages of the software development.
Much care is taken during this phase. The logical system of the
product is developed in this phase.
4. Code Generation
The design must be translated into a machine-readable form. The
code generation step performs this task. If the design is performed
in a detailed manner, code generation can be accomplished without
much complication. Programming tools like compilers, interpreters,
debuggers etc. are used to generate the code. Different high level
programming languages like C, C++, C#, Pascal and Java are used for coding.
With respect to the type of application, the right programming
language is chosen.
Once the code is generated, the software program testing begins.
Different testing methodologies are available to unravel any bugs
that were introduced during the previous phases. Different testing
tools and methodologies are utilized by OptiStaff.
The software may undergo change once it is delivered. It will be
developed to accommodate any changes required during the post
