To begin with…
• What is offshoring?
• Why offshoring followed in the Industry?
- Cost Reduction
- Efficient use of skilled labors
- Focus is on core competence and innovation
Challenges in offshoring
• What are the risks in offshoring?
- Geographical risks
- Project risks
- Infrastructure and Operational risks
• Quality and Productivity consideration.
Productivity
Time
• Productivity
Cost
The production or delivery of more products or
services with less effort and less cost in a shorter
time period with the better quality[1].
• Productivity =
Output produced by the process
Input consumed by the process
Productivity Conceptual Model
Inputs
•People – Experience,
Knowledge,Skill
•Management
•Processes
•Systems ,Tools and Materials
Conversion Process
Outputs
•Improved Services
•Reduced Costs
•Increased Volume
Improving Quality of High Level Design
• Existing Approaches in Capgemini for Analysis,
Design and Architecture
- CASA – Capgemini Accelerator for Software
Architecture
• LSPCM analysis as a quality gate for High Level
Design
- LSPCM – LaQuso Software Product Certification Model
CASA - Capgemini Accelerator for Software
Architecture
• What is CASA?
- Capgemini Accelerator for Software Architecture
• Aim of CASA
- “Building the Product right”.

Examples
LaQuso Software Certification Model (LSPCM)
• What is LSPCM?
- Rule based software product certification model.
• What LSPCM contains?
- Product areas
- Properties of product areas
- Certification Criteria (CC) for all product areas
[CC1]Completeness
[CC2]Uniformity
[CC3]Conformance
- Specific Criterias (Rules)
- Certification levels
Quality improvement for High Level Design
• High Level Design
• Why quality improvements for High Level Design?
Research Goals
• Suggest improvements for High Level Design in the
context of offshoring
- LSPCM Certification Model
- CASA
- Case Studies
Side goals
• Improve productivity
- Analyzing influence of high level design quality.
- Analyzing the split in activities between onshore
and offshore teams.
Research Question
• What aspects of the software artifact High Level
Design determine the quality of offshored software
development?
• Side Questions:
- How can quality of high level design influence
project’s productivity?
- How can split in activities between onshore and
offshore team influence on the project’s
productivity?
