Clarity - Features

Clarity™ maximizes product development, product quality, and staff effectiveness by implementing the “Goldilocks” measure of process allocation and timeliness – just the right amount of process by the right person at the right time. This minimizes error propagation in product development, reducing rework and maximizes the use of team members’ time. To accomplish this, Clarity is based on six Key Components and twelve Support Components.

Key Components

  • Organization Goals – overarching directives that mold process design
  • Software Lifecycle Checklists – provide a repeatable, structured approach to product development
  • Project Plans – define the baseline plan for the product’s complete lifecycle
  • Categories – scales process activities based on product scope and criticality
  • Teams – grouped by development functions to optimize production
  • Software Tasks – a separate mini-software development lifecycle to mitigate error propagation

Support Components

  • Action Items – track important activities that support product development
  • Build Management – a software-specific component that supports the build process
  • Change Management – track and disposition product change requests
  • Continual Improvement – adjust and evolve development processes
  • Dual Coverage – track special skills required to develop and maintain product and other organization functions
  • Methodologies – defines multiple approaches available to development activities
  • Metrics – performance indicators of process, product, and support activities
  • Software Release Checklist – manage and track an individual development lifecycle
  • Training – supports initial, continuation and special staff training activities
  • Testing – for product validation and verification activities prior to release
  • Versioning – defines the scheme used to identify products
