Abstract

This paper develops the spring model as a new information technology (IT) system development methodology to combine software engineering stages and project management factors. Spring model conducted time line control mechanism, progress measuring as well as the conventional IT system development tasks. The new integrated approach enables the developers to control time, budget, and other vital assets during engineering process. Spring methodology improves the existing IT system development methodologies using the results of a comprehensive literature review about the lack of project management tools in current IT system development methodologies.

The new proposed methodology supports requirements of project control process (PCP) and project life cycle (PLC). Besides new methods, spring model utilizes some of the current useful features of popular lifecycle methodologies. Therefore, the new methodology is easy to use and has the capability to apply to any type of IT systems including IT business application, system software, and even embedded systems.

In the suggested spring methodology, the Percent Complete Rules axis with IT governance criteria, technical aspect, and managerial aspects are three pillars that provide a powerful approach for system development process. Finally, the Spring Methodology enables engineers and managers to work together in an integrated professional environment with different perspectives to control the development progress from their particular criteria.
