The evolution of technology over the years has brought great advancements that have enhanced the life style of people around the world. Apart from the technology that have been made commercial, there are many ideas and innovation that ended with a deadlock on certain stages as well. The primary reasons for such deadlocks have been lack of demand and high cost of production. It is high time for innovators to have a study of those stalled projects and look into the process if the deadlocks can somehow be eliminated. The changes in technology over the years have brought the cost of production to drop significantly and the changes in the global lifestyle have evolved new demands that those stalled projects might be able to help.
Innovations that have experienced deadlocks in the past are great field of study these days. And one method to start any innovation study in the field of Computer Systems is the Project Initiation Document (PID). There have been many developments and discoveries that have been stalled without utilizing the optimal potential. And on some cases, there are some technologies that can be enhanced to provide better results and more convenience commercially.
Computer Systems developers have realized the importance of reusable technology and its significance in quick turnaround time. Project Initiation Document (PID) is widely used by systems developers in standardizing the measures of the initial parameters that come into play during the project planning and development. Every software or hardware project these days requires complete documentation, and PID serves as the initial framework for the same.
The PID comprises several features that are documented which help the developers to carry the innovation forward on the right path by following the requirements. For every new development, usually the use of waterfall model enables a structured approach which allows the concept of re-engineering at later stages.
A PID starts with the planning phase of the project, where requirements are gathered and documented. Different stakeholders of the system have different requirements, however when the software requirement specification (SRS) document is finalized, the requirements specified within SRS are then documented into PID and according to these requirements the initial structure of the project is designed. The PID also comprises the documentation of project breakdown structure, which denotes how modules are categorized and integrated to one system. This not only standardizes the procedure of the development but it also helps the developers to analyze the structure when the project modifications are to be implemented in future. In this way PID ensures steady progress of the development, and if at later stage any rectification or modification needs to be done in the technology the PID can help in identifying the bottlenecks so that the appropriate resources can be applied.
So, the PID in the long run ensures success in a way that if any technology is stalled half way due to any reason or if new team jumps into any innovation that has been initiated earlier, the technology in this way can be easily understood and carried forward to a stable stage where it can be released.
