Explaining the Prototype Design Phase
A document to help you better understand the Prototype phase
Designing a prototype can be compared to designing a house.
Step 1: We Have a Blueprint: We have completed the groundwork and, to the best of our knowledge, have designed system requirements that will meet the needs of each of the workstreams.
Step 2: Design: All of the requirements were analyzed to determine how well they fit into the base framework of the TRIRIGA system. Each of the requirements received a rating from eCIFM, the TRIRIGA system integrator.
The ratings definitions are:
1 = out of box
2 = minor configuration
3 = more configuration but will be done for prototype
4= higher level configuration, will be in scope for implementation
5= customization is needed and will take additional funding
Our goal at this step was to focus on those requirements that have been rated 1-4. Specifically, we will build the system with the requirements that were rated 1-3 and will design the system for the requirements that were rated a 4. This will allow us to be able to view how the functionality will work in the TRIRIGA system.
Step 3: Prototype phase: The prototype functionality has continued to be fine-tuned and built out to ensure the TRIRIGA system behaves in a way that meets the needs of each of the workstreams.
Step 4: Implementation phase: We have our users test the system functionality to make sure it can handle the required tasks in real-world scenarios.
Step 5: Future Continuous Improvement: The system is live, but the work continues.
