To support the joint work of development teams that operate from different locations (such as in offshoring or nearshoring projects), we have developed the think tank Progress Tracking System.
The PTS is a web-based system that supports the user in each phase of the software development process.
Once the target scope has been defined, it is subdivided into a number of tasks, each one allocated with time and cost/limits. During the development process, time and budget can thus be controlled on a daily basis.
The degree of completion of system functionalities as well as time sheets of project staff are recorded on a daily basis. Defects are entered, allocated and tracked, based on a flexible status model, which structures and bundles the project communication.
