RSDM


RSDM

All development projects must have defined limits as distinct from being on-going or continuing. RADIX, being a contractor, has all the more reasons to think in terms of fixed beginning and ending because of pre-defined contract deliverables and expectations. However, the concept of boundaries should not limit the functionality of a system from between-project revisions or future enhancements. These opposing views are the main reasons why system development projects must follow a phased approach.

RSDM (RADIX Systems Development Methodology) is intended as a guide for all personnel involved in the different phases of systems development and includes techniques to carry out the approach. As a guide, it provides recommendations and not limitations. Development projects vary in scope, size, complexity and many other aspects. Therefore, each project must be assessed to determine how RSDM is to be applied to the different phases of the project.

This manual describes the phased approach and provides guidelines within which distinct project milestones can be defined. It uses technical terms and presentation documents familiar to development persons. However, when the output of the phase is to be presented to the users, the output and terms used should be translated into formats and terms easily understood by the end users. A good understanding of the requirements and expectations can only be achieved through confirmation from the users. Hence, we need to be understood and using jargons and objects not familiar to the users will only push us away from our objectives. By simplifying the output to the level of the users, the confirmation and approval processes required by the development phases will be expedited.

Summary of the major RSDM project phases:

After the output files are generated, several reports may be used to print the following items:

  • Identification of User Needs
  • Requirements Definition
  • Database Design
  • Detailed Design
  • Software Construction
  • Software Certification
  • Installation
