IFAD offers consultancy within systems integration, software development, software modeling and design, software quality assurance, document management and project management.
Software development projects of today are very complex and demand the best project management and development systems to be used. IFAD works continuously on reducing risks in development projects, and to improve our competitiveness. Up-to-date project management and collaboration tools are used in all our projects.
Our generic project model
IFADs generic project model defines tasks and responsibilities relevant in a software development project, and lists the required key documents to be produced and approved. Document standards, applicable tools and techniques, forms, and review check lists are provided separately through IFADs quality system.
IFAD takes responsibility as administrative project managers with focus on management and project administration, or as technical project managers. Our project managers have many years of experience in managing small as well as large multi-team multi-national software development projects. Often our tasks are carried out in close cooperation with our customers' management teams, e.g. Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO)
Configuration management is the key to successful projects. We are using configuration management systems for all aspects of our projects from document configuration management, through defect management and change requests to source code and released software builds. These systems are being used by several of our customers, including the Danish Army and Navy, in large software projects with thousands of documents.
IFADs quality policy is to deliver high quality solutions and products that meet our customers' expectations on time and within budget. Our systems and procedures ensure that our software solutions and products are developed and maintained using the best suited methods, technologies and tools.
IFADs quality system, project management model and software development process are based on a traditional project level tailoring of AQAP-150. The system is based on quality systems already tailored to existing projects, and a set of general applicable manuals, templates and standards.
