In an effort to minimize cost and schedule risk, Braxton’s engineering processes ensure requirements are mapped out and confirmed with the customer using display mockups, white papers, prototypes, and formal requirements documents. The hybrid Agile process delivers reliably on a demanding ops tempo, demonstrating Braxton’s ability to manage challenging turnaround times and short-notice changes.
Due to the demanding nature of Braxton’s programs, risk reduction processes ensure requirements are mapped out and confirmed with the customer using display mockups, white papers, prototypes, and formal requirements documents. Braxton stays in close communication with the customer throughout each release cycle to ensure the deliveries will meet customer expectations. Braxton provides program status via weekly customer “tagups” to identify and resolve problems immediately, and Braxton participates in impromptu status meetings as needed.
Braxton manages requirements carefully on these programs, accepting requirements from the customer by various means, including verbally, presentations, screen shots, and requirements documents. Requirements are maintained on Braxton’s requirements and workflow management system, document management system, and collaboration wiki, as well as on the customer’s document management site. Each program maintains requirements traceability and verification matrix used to manage the work process and system verification prior to operational deployment.
Braxton regularly holds design reviews so the customer can gain confidence in the programs’ architectural direction and so Braxton can confirm the accuracy of requirements, solutions, and implementation.
