Managing Time and Quality

To increase sales by extending e-commerce services online.

Analysis of Motivations towards the Project

The outcome of this project is in itself a motivation towards completing this project. This project will result in increasing the sales volume of the company by implementation of an e-commerce system.

The Spiral Model Of Project Management

The spiral model is based upon the principle that we go through the different phases again and again, until we reach a certain degree of maturity of the product to be created which e.g., a customer can accept. It is even possible that one part of our project is still in definition phase while another one is already in implementation phase. Typical examples of this iterative approach would be IT projects, i.e. the design and development of products and services in the IT industry with its short innovation cycles and high probabilities of changing requirements during implementation phase.

Main Requirements of the Project

To advertise and recruit required professionals.

To analyze and document the specifications for the required functionality.

To acquire the needed hardware and software as part of IT infrastructure facilities.

To design, implement, test and operate the entire system.
