Kanban

Kanban is one of the most effective workflow management methods. SmartexLab offers it when a project requires a visual representation of the work in progress and limiting tasks taken in an iteration to meet the goals of the sprint and avoid the development team overburdening.

Our approach to Kanban

  • Visualize

    We stick to a visual representation of your process to see potential and real problems that may impact the output of the project.

  • Limit

    With the Kanban methodology, the team ensures efficiency and continuous progress of the project due to the limiting of work in progress.

  • Optimize

    We collect and analyze project-related data to create indicators and metrics for existing and future problems.

  • Improve

    Our team is focused on continuous improvement, achieved through regular feedback cycles that motivate specialists to implement new creative approaches and solutions.

Kanban workflow

SmartexLab's team works from a Kanban board in the order listed below:

High-level goal setting
Story queue with the tasks ready to be started
Elaboration and acceptance of the tasks
Development
Quality assurance
Deployment
Done

Waterfall

Want a detailed visualization for the end product and to see the results step by step? Choose the Waterfall project management model and benefit from clear milestones implemented in a sequence.

The SmartexLab approach to the Waterfall model is characterized by active communication and detailed reporting to track the progress of the project and mitigate risks.

Key benefits with SmartexLab

  • Detailed system documentation and user guides
  • All IPRs are transferred to a client
  • Better time management within the team
  • Easy to understand process
  • Client knows what and when to expect
  • Easy to track and measure results
  • Save time and money

Our approach to Waterfall

  • Idea elaboration

    When you just have a high-level idea, we help with a baseline assessment of the project, its cost analysis and its benefits. Once the idea is created, the project team defines scope, purpose, and a set of deliverables for successful implementation.

  • Documentation

    Documentation is the central element in this model that includes product requirements, design and source code in all stages.

  • Time and resources

    Timelines are set at the beginning of the project and the team should adhere to them without causing urgency.

  • Clearly defined steps

    The stages of the project development should be well defined as they have to be completed in the order and without overlap.

Phases in Waterfall

Requirements gathering
System design
Coding
Quality Assurance
Integration
Deployment
Maintenance
