Project Management

At Cysca-Sysacom we manage projects using a method that is a mix of the more classical waterfall model and the modern Agile model. The Agile model is better for software development and especially software for man-machine-interfaces since it enables continuous involvement from the customer and users. While the Waterfall model is better applied to projects which involve hardware design and manufacturing, since it is difficult to separate the project in many partial product releases as required by the Agile model.

Waterfall Model

The waterfall model is a sequential (non-iterative) design process, in which progress is seen as flowing steadily downwards (like a waterfall) through the phases of conception, initiation, analysis, design, construction, testing, production/implementation and maintenance. The waterfall development model originates in the manufacturing and construction industries: highly structured physical environments in which after-the-fact changes are prohibitively costly.

Waterfall model is generally composed of the following phases:

Agile Model

Agile model refers to an iterative, incremental method of managing the design and build activities of engineering, information technology and other business areas that aim to provide new product or service development in a highly flexible and interactive manner. It requires capable individuals from the relevant business, openness to consistent customer input, and management openness to non-hierarchical forms of leadership. Agile has conceptual links to lean techniques, kaizen, and the Six Sigma area of business ideas.
