Autoware is certified by CSIA since 2014. The certification is specific for integrators and provides the Best Practices that transversally cover all the companies areas. Being CSIA certified means having implemented the Best Practices guidelines, that is, having structured a Project Management System and Quality Assurance, an organizational, evaluation, growth and enhancement of human resources plan, a strategic, commercial and marketing plan, a qualified system in terms of Information Technology.”
Following the continuous improvement path traced by CSIA, Autoware has developed very solid Project Management competencies. The two project categories that are frequently managed are:
Waterfall Project (Standard)
A project managed with the classic waterfall approach is characterized by a linear flow among the analysis, design, development, test and release phases. Autoware’s project management is responsible for formalizing and sharing with the customer the project plan, in particular the purpose, the related risks and how the project is going to be managed. This sequential process allows the customer to have since the beginning a clear idea of budget, time, costs and planning. Moreover, the documentation formalization reduces drastically the risks of misunderstandings.
The modules software release allows the customer to benefit from it since the early stages of the project. The project manager prepares the activities list, to which the customer may assign a priority according to his demand. Also, the effort required by each activity, that is, the amount of time to be dedicated, gives the customer the possibility to replace ativities given the effort required. The frequent updates on the application’s state of art and the frequent software releases allow a significant project risk reduction.
