A project schedule is an indispensable tool in the hands of a Project Manager to efficiently manage and direct project work. A well-constructed and maintained schedule is a key ingredient needed for the success of any project. The DCMA 14-point assessment offers a project manager an industry defined method to quantitatively evaluate a schedule and improve its quality. The project manager may use the DCMA 14-point assessment at the beginning of the project as a set of guidelines for developing a logic driven, solid and manageable schedule, and throughout the life of the project, as a set of health checks for periodically evaluating the schedule against a set of measurable criteria.

El código es la firma de un desarrollador en un proyecto de software, y no todos los desarrolladores cumplen las reglas de los buenos estándares de codificación. Asegúrese de que su equipo de desarrollo deje un legado de codificación que no solo implemente la aplicación en cuestión, sino que pueda ser entendido por otros y mantenido durante futuros ciclos de desarrollo.

Even when engineering teams follow best practices and work on incorporating security requirements into software products, companies still see an influx of reported issues. Keep these tips in mind.
Project bugs and the forecasting of progress can be complex. An Excel spreadsheet can be employed to gauge the progress of the testing and resolution teams. Using this simplistic method in conjunction with test-estimation techniques can help the project manager determine the completion date for testing efforts.
There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into defining and completing an end-of-life cycle for every software product. It also requires a skilled program/project manager. Here are some recommendations to help facilitate this process.
