Waterfall Project Management
Tell us about your project.
The Waterfall methodology provides stakeholders and development teams the ability to systematically map out project’s tasks & requirements in waves.Why Choose Orases?
Through the use of the Waterfall project management methodology, software development projects are completed through iterative phases called “waves”. Each wave consists of features and requirements which need to be completed, tested and QA’d before moving on to the next phase.
This software project management methodology improves the communication between stakeholders and development teams to ensure expectations are aligned and all software requirements are met. Our custom software development team uses the Waterfall project management methodology to enhance collaboration and increase efficiencies when developing software.
Benefits Of Waterfall Project Management Methodology
Due to the iterative steps involved with the Waterfall methodology, all tasks completed within each wave are thoroughly tested and QA’d, minimizing the risk of bugs and issues appearing throughout the project.Learn More About Us
Determine Budget Early Into Projects
Since each wave of the project is outlined before starting, the overall budget of the project can be identified early on. This reduces the chance of having to spend more than originally budgeted due to unforeseen problems or additional feature requests.
Minimal Changes Throughout
As a linear software project management approach, the Waterfall methodology requires stakeholders and developers to agree on project requirements prior to beginning the development process. The mutual agreement on requirements decreases unforeseen changes to the project, improving the overall efficiency of the project.
Members Have Defined Roles
All members of the project are assigned clear and defined roles which increases accountability and responsibility of completing particular tasks and requirements. Additionally, these defined roles also improve the QA process once tasks and requirements have been completed.
Ability To Easily Measure Progress
The progress of the project can be easily measured and understood by stakeholders through identifying waves that have been completed and which wave is currently being worked on.
The Waterfall Model For Software Development
The Importance Of Project Management For Software Development
Without the proper software project management methodology in place, a custom software development team may begin working on a project without any clear vision or guidance from important stakeholders, resulting in more frequent errors, confusion and missing key project features and requirements.
