Oracle E-Business Suite Integration Software Factory

By: Andrew Karasev

When we talk about implementation, customization, integration, data conversion and tailoring the ERP for large corporate business or non-profit organization, we need to formalize and structure software development project.  This approach is also referred as Software Development Factory.

The Software Factory concept is based on a production line for systems from user requirements to software delivered. This production should be done without any direct communication between developers (production line workers) and users, system analysts and designers (customer side), based upon a scope, schedule, costs and quality standards.

A software development process is a fundamental piece to a software factory success, it considers all software development cycle and help project activities and resources management (plan and control).

The activities could be categorized as following:

  • Project Management: project scope definition activities; version control; work, quality and risk plans; human resources organization, training and allocation, and so far;
  • Business Requirements Mapping: based on specific business requirements and Oracle Applications functionalities gaps, customizations (extensions) will be planned and developed;
  • Module Design and Build: activities to estimate, plan, design, build, test and document custom program modules (forms, reports, database, etc);
  • Business System test: integrated approach to testing the quality of all application system elements;
  • Performance Testing: these activities helps the project team define, build, and execute a performance test on specific system modules and configurations;
  • Adoption and Learning: accelerates the implementation team’s ability to work together through organization-specific customizations learning.

Other important development process features are standards names for file structures, tables, fields, variables and others key elements used during development activity.

This facilitates upgrades procedures and applications maintenance.
