Pre-Project Planning & Scope Definition
The first and most important step to project success is a
well defined and translated project scope. During this phase,
Penn Dynamics will meet with you and your team and discuss the
requirements in detail to get a full understanding of what is
expected in the final delivered product or service. Depending
on project size, this step could require multiple on site visits
or group meetings to ensure no details are left out of the fold.
Once all requirements are gathered, we prepare a well written
"Scope of Work" which will include specifics about the project,
estimated milestone time frames, non-disclosure forms, business
associate agreements (if required), and estimated costs of the
Design, Development, Quality Assurance
This is where the magic happens! We start engineering your
project using the project scope as our baseline. Once we have
all of the particulars mapped out and in place, we use an agile
methodology to develop and test quality assurance procedures
project part by part — this allows us to continuously
test each part of the project during development to help minimize
errors or project bugs in the final delivered product.
Education, Training, Feedback
With all projects we implement, we provide education and
training sessions for decision makers and relevant personnel.
Depending on the project scope, training and education can be
anything simple from explanations of user documentation to lunchtime
group education classes.
In addition to training and education, these sessions are
also used for project feedback. Feedback allows us to fine tune
the project or product before launch, ultimately helping to
ensure a smooth and successful implementation.
Project Execution (Launch)
It's go time — your product or project is now ready
for implementation. For custom developed software and data systems,
we monitor the live systems around the clock (or active production
hours) for an incubation period of 30 [thirty] days. During
this time, we continuously monitor performance of the implemented
system(s) to ensure they are running smoothly and at their greatest
Your project has been completed and is running smoothly,
but we are still not done. Throughout your projects life cycle,
we periodically evaluate your project and stay in close contact
with you to ensure it continues to meet your requirements. Should
you ever need fixes or enhancements, we are here to tackle the
tasks — you are our most valuable asset, and we fully
invest ourselves in every project or service we manage!
