This chart explains the concept of
requirements-based management process for operations and services
improvement. The whole process under the Planning Programming Budgeting
Services process is divided into five stages.
Stage 1: need/opportunity collection
Stage 2: validation
Stage 3: research and analysis
Stage 4: operational development
Stage 5: deploy, maintains & assess
There are four gates to be set between the
stages to check on the following.
Gate 1 (between Stage 1 to 2): input
documentation & validation resourcing
Gate 2 (between Stage 2 to 3): research &
analysis, approval & resourcing
Gate 3 (between Stage 3 to 4): solution
selection & resourcing
Gate 4 (between Stage 4 to 5): defelopment
decision & resourcing
To advance from a lower stage to a higher
stage, the core document is required by each gate, which should include:
G1 Core Document: need
G2 Core Document: 1) statement of need, 2)
operations concept, 3) operational requirements, 4) activity plan.
G3 Core Document: 1) Business case, 2)
requirements document, 3) operational development plan.
G4 Core Document: 1)
development decision document, 2) development, maintenance & assessment
It is very important to
closely interact with user feedbacks as well as research and assessment
results in all development stages.
