Implementation Methodology

Each Assignment is unique, with its own variations to the standard requirement.   While the common denominators in all projects are the Cost and Time, there are variations of Size, Technology, Customization requirement, Client involvement etc.  This calls for a slightly different approach to cater to the specific need of the project at hand.

On-shore / Onsite Model:

Some projects are best done at the Customer location itself. Situations where the requirements are still emerging and when a lot of changes are expected, it is more meaningful to follow a incremental process in executing the project. It is expected that documentation will be kept to the minimum and the focus will be on a very tight, day to day project review and management.

CNA can either supplement with adequately skilled workforce, or can take up such projects on a turnkey basis.  It is normally expected that such projects are quite small or are a Proof of concept for a larger Project.

Onsite – Offshore Hybrid Model:

The first step is to identify task that can be done at offshore, without undue risk element being introduced, so as to take advantage of the on-site offshore model of project execution.

Broadly speaking, tasks like Requirement Gathering, Integrated testing and commission have to be done at the Client’s site.  Major part of Analysis, Design, Engineering and documentation can be done at offshore at the CoE.
