System Engineering

System Engineering

Being able to design and implement a system, taking full consideration of the life-cycle costs, is important to ensure that customers get maximum Return on Investment (ROI).

This is especially important in the electronics and software industry, where improper design can lead to extensive waste in the development and implementation time (and cost) if the design and specifications were not done correctly.

SmartMob has more than 27 years of experience in this environment and can add significant value through a proper Systems Engineering approach to a system.
Portfolio, Program and Project Management

Project Management

Several project management frameworks have been defined over the years and the best one for a project or projects is sometimes a difficult choice.

During our 23 years of experience in this field, we have done many projects using all three the main frameworks, PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge), Prince II and Agile.
Business Process Improvement and Design

Business Processes

Business processes are key to the success and profitability of your business but are often cumbersome and prone to error.

The larger the organization, the more important it becomes because it captures the shareholders’ vision for service and provides a repeatable and measurable methodology to ensure that proper service and products are delivered to end-users.

In a fast-changing and disruptive technical environment; business processes and supporting systems should be reviewed and optimized regularly to ensure that you retain your competitive edge. This is the business version of Stephen Covey’s seventh habit for highly effective people – Sharpen the saw.
Business Process Improvement and Design

Business Processes

We identified a need in the market, aimed at a subset of the typical Project Management tools, to manage requirements and client/stakeholder expectations to ensure the success of any project.

Requirements Management” is a process that identifies stakeholder needs and then manage the process of analysingprioritizingagreeing and documenting requirements that ensures all role players fully understands the journey ahead.  This is supported by controlling the change management process and ensuring buy-in through proper communication processesBenefits Tracking is used to track the success of the intervention and to report to stakeholders.
