Delivering your turnkey mobile data solution

Introduction

Thorcom is able to provide a comprehensice project managment service to take your requirement to completion on time and on budget. Thorcom's project managment team usually starts at the pre-sales phase of any project and uses experience gained over more than 25-years to produce a comprehensive and realistic project plan, and execute it to completion using Thorcom and Third Party resources.

Thorcom follows a PRINCE2 methodolgy for managing projects, with an output orientattion focused on quality. We will work with you and our partners to define the key inputs and outputs and agree specific goals and the activities required to deliver these.

Development

Many Thorcom projects involve a significant amount of New Product Development, often to take a standard solution or product and engineer it in to a novel solution. To achieve this in areas where the user requirements are difficult to define at the outset, Thorcom adopts an Agile software development approach, in particular RAD or Rapid Application Development.

The Thorcom project team is able to use Agile software development within it's wider project managment approach, resulting in a delivered solution that meets the end customer needs.

Project Phases

All projects vary according to complexity, scale, and if Thorcom is working with a Delivery Partner, or directly with an end user organisation. Each project usually starts with a User Requirements Capture, an Engineering Phase, Factory Testing, a Delivery Phase, Acceptance Testing, and then Training, Documentation and hand over to long term support. Project specific documenation will also be provided which includes a Project Inititiation Document, a Risk Register, a Quality Register and a Tasks and Issues list, with the work schedule and critical path being controlled using a shared Project Plan or Gantt Chart.
