To be able to succeed in a measurement system project there are some things to think about first in the project, or even before the project is started. There are more to think about later in the project but getting a good start is very important. Here are five documents that I strongly recommend you to have in place before you continue on to development.
Requirement Specification and Risk Analysis
Proof Of Concept
It’s realized late in the project that the measurement method has to be changed. This will lead to late changes, and therefore extra costs. How could this have been avoided? By a proof of concept analysis. Such an analysis looks at the concept from several points of view, where looking of all models to be tested is one of them.
To summarize, spend some time on the following documents to get a good starting point for your project.
