compromise with quality and software process guarantees the
appropriate use of the Unified Software Development Process.
Our process employs UML notation (Unified Modeling Language),
in each of the different steps. We specialize in the construction
of solutions based on the Java and Microsoft platform and tools.
Unified Software Development Process is the set of procedures,
activities, controls, tools, training and, in general, the whole
experience accumulated, which are improved day by day with a
continuous improvement mentality, with an aim to surpass the
expectations of the client.
are convinced that a robust software development process is
the base for a consistently successful implementation of projects.
A well-defined process allows a careful analysis of the parameters
affecting the performance level of our professionals and the
quality of the resulting software products.
process can never be improved if no assessment of its capacity
and maturity is available. To improve our process we are helped
by software specialists that measure and analyze the efficiency
of the process with statistical tools, comparing against well-known
quality systems like SEI-CMM and ISO-9001.
attain our level of on-time and quality delivery in our projects,
automated controls are applied which provide our managers with
valuable information to guide decision-making during the project.
An orientation towards risks identification and elimination
contributes to on-time delivery. Risks are handled by means
of an iterative and incremental process, where progress is effectively
validated in each iteration with the client.
know that software implies more than a running program. A quality
software is a flexible, robust, and documented system that is
efficiently employed by users, fulfilling their needs. The life
cycle does not end with software release, because with high
likelihood the internal and external conditions of the business
will evolve (company growth, macro-economy, etc.), so that systems
will demand modifications and extensions. Without good documentation
and a robust architecture these changes will entail a large
risk, with a concomitant important and unnecessary cost for
architecture of the systems we develop is based on the UML notation
that supports the object-oriented paradigm with components,
which assures, in conjunction with our quality assurance plan,
the flexibility and robustness of our systems. The use of CASE
tools for architecture analysis and design, together with reuse
management result in a reduction of development time and therefore
of project cost, as well as in an increase of quality resulting
from using tested components from different currently in operation.
of the documentation generated when following the Unified Process
is the following:
· System architecture (UML and Data Model)
· User Manual
· Deployment Manual
· Tests specification
· Installation disks
· Source code
is a means, not an end, and therefore at Inar we will never
be completely satisfied with our performance and quality levels.
Our compromise with the client makes us constantly push for
new methods and tools to be able to offer better solutions.
