Improving CASA and LSPCM on high level design for offshoring Students: Nivedita Angadi Guides: Tanya Kudchadker Prof. Mark van denBrand, Tu/e Martijn Klabbers, LaQuso, Tu/e Cornelly Spier, Capgemini Rob Boomsma, Capgemini Rob Ista, Capgemini
To begin with… What is offshoring? Why offshoring followed in the Industry? - Cost Reduction - Efficient use of skilled labors - Focus is on core competence and innovation
Challenges in offshoring What are the risks in offshoring? - Geographical risks - Project risks - Infrastructure and Operational risks Quality and Productivity consideration.
Productivity The production or delivery of more products or services with less effort and less cost in a shorter time period with the better quality. Productivity = Output produced by the process Input consumed by the process Cost Time
Productivity Conceptual Model Inputs People – Experience, Knowledge,Skill Management Processes Systems,Tools and Materials Conversion Process Outputs Improved Services Reduced Costs Increased Volume
Improving Quality of High Level Design Existing Approaches in Capgemini for Analysis, Design and Architecture - CASA – Capgemini Accelerator for Software Architecture LSPCM analysis as a quality gate for High Level Design - LSPCM – LaQuso Software Product Certification Model
CASA - Capgemini Accelerator for Software Architecture What is CASA? - Capgemini Accelerator for Software Architecture Aim of CASA - Building the Product right. CASA PredictabilityCollaboration Product Qualiity Productivity
Positioning of CASA Positioning of CASA 
What CASA contains ? Templates Examples Checklists Guidelines
LaQuso Software Certification Model (LSPCM) What is LSPCM? - Rule based software product certification model. What LSPCM contains? - Product areas - Properties of product areas - Certification Criteria (CC) for all product areas [CC1]Completeness [CC2]Uniformity [CC3]Conformance - Specific Criterias (Rules) - Certification levels
Quality improvement for High Level Design High Level Design Why quality improvements for High Level Design?
Research Goals Suggest improvements for High Level Design in the context of offshoring - LSPCM Certification Model - CASA - Case Studies
Side goals Improve productivity - Analyzing influence of high level design quality. - Analyzing the split in activities between onshore and offshore teams.
Research Question What aspects of the software artifact High Level Design determine the quality of offshored software development? Side Questions: - How can quality of high level design influence projects productivity? - How can split in activities between onshore and offshore team influence on the projects productivity?
Plan for tasks 1.Literature study on productivity 2.Literature study on Software Architecture and high level design 3.Analysis of necessary artifacts of CASA for high level design 4.Analysis of defects faced with offshored projects. 5.Analysis of Case studies and Suggestions for improvement in high level design. 6.Thesis and Presentation.
