Our Project Development methodology is evolved to
suit the requirements of project. The Lifecycle of
the project is traced based on the methodology
chosen. A brief, providing the salient features of
the methodology is presented below.
Project Plan and Tracking
the schedule: Project plan for the total
life cycle, from start to the finish is drawn up. A
schedule of project development in terms of

would be Weekly review about the proceeds of the
project and the Bi-weekly status report.

be given to the Project Manager periodically.

project or the task will be tracked. Every issue of
a stage would be resolved to proceed to the next
stage. Delay in issue and resolution will also be

developers. The minutes of the meeting and action
points would be documented and would be posted.
