Quality-Based Design Transition
Quality-Based Design Transition improves the activities required to move
analysis deliverables on to system design. Many organizations that invest
heavily in analysis modeling still lose much of that investment by setting
aside the models at the beginning of design to revert to traditional design
techniques. Through proper transition techniques,
This seminar explains how to define, verify, and validate the analysis-to-design models for information systems:
This seminar supports the broadest range of analysis-to-design transition activities. The transition steps needed remain virtually the same whether the design transition is targeted at a completely manual non-automated implementation strategy, such as a basic process reengineering effort, or a completely integrated and modern systems implementation, such as a Web page interconnecting all customers and suppliers. A clean and complete transition maximizes the value of the investment already made in detail data and process analysis.
Organizations invest heavily in project analysis activities, often to
discover that they lack the skills needed to effectively take full advantage
of the results of that analysis as design begins. It is not uncommon for
These projects are later left wondering why there are significant omissions and defects, and again why the resulting design doesn’t align well to the analysis models. Such failure to align leaves management feeling that the analysis investment wasn’t worthwhile, instead of recognizing that the design transition was deficient.
Misalignment not only hurts the current project, it also assures that the next project to come along will not want to take advantage of the perceived failed analysis models. Analysis model reuse drops to near zero, and modeling falls into disfavor. Future investment in modeling is canceled, or becomes a token effort. Effective transition skills can prevent these failures.

Design transition is a virtually nonexistent topic in the literature, and in the education and training arena. This seminar offers specific unambiguous techniques for transitioning the hard earned benefits of rigorous analysis into objective preliminary design artifacts, maximizing the benefits to the project.
