Effective Software and Systems Integration methods provide an understanding and importance of critical factors such as
planning, systems design, requirements, software design, configuration management, integration, testing, subcontractors,
and quality. The Software Companies and Institutions that design, build, and test software work products effectively, provide
the framework of disciplines during development life-cycles. These methods support the building of software baselines inside
integration environments to prepare for delivery of effective software and systems to customers. Opportunities to work in
the technology field of software provided me the perspective and understanding of day to day engineering integration and
test activities. It is critical that integration schedules are addressed and coordinated daily with software teams and outside
organizations. The software development life-cycle must be completed and configured before baselines are released for test,
integration, and functional checkouts. Effective Methods for Software and Systems Integration deliver quality work products to
ensure a commitment to planned schedules that will benefit current and future software companies and institutions. In order
to develop, operate, and maintain software and systems integration capabilities inside work product facilities, there are major
disciplines required in supporting the entire software development life-cycle (i.e., planning, systems, requirements, design,
builds, installations, integration, subcontractors, quality, and delivery) and do need to be completely understood. The critical
understanding and the start of the right disciplines of these methods will empower and achieve effective, flexible, and quality
results in numerous software and systems integration environments.
Effective - Become effective by the implementation of achievable schedules, sound processes, and working solutions for
software and systems integration.
Methods - Provide effective methods to ensure processes and software tools improve productivity to prepare for the challenges
ahead that impact integration environments.
Software - Software design, code & unit test, plans, and test procedures integrated with applied systems tell us that the software
developed for use is done right. ?Peer Reviews? is the key discipline
Systems - Accomplish an effort to allocate software design and engineering practices for systems to be defined and documented
and ready for the combination of software and systems integration.
Integration - The compass to combine software, systems, firmware, and hardware to work together as one.
There are any effective methods for software and systems integration, but the number one method is ?Quality First? and
the other methods come in second!
