Systems Analysis

Applying the Systems Framework.

Systems analysis is a methodology of applying a holistic perspective to solving complex problems. When our clients bring a challenge to the table, the Logapps team gets to the root of the problem by conducting deep systems analysis: taking all aspects of the system into account, looking at the wider system, breaking apart components, and getting to know every function and process to best determine the way forward. By understanding the “as-is” state, our engineers can troubleshoot existing roadblocks and design a system that is scalable to future needs.

Logapps - Cost Estimation

Logapps delivers comprehensive, defendable cost estimates that identify the resources and funding necessary to support technology development, deployment, and maintenance at a specified risk threshold. Our team draws from the latest industry data, best practices, and tools to develop robust cost estimates. Our team provides budget estimates to capture the total cost of ownership and help managers set realistic budgets for their program, Independent Cost Estimates (ICEs) to provide an independent view of a program’s cost and schedule, and Independent Government Cost Estimates (IGCEs) that help program managers and procurement officials ensure the government receives fair and reasonable prices from vendors and service providers. Additionally, a Logapps cost estimate gives you peace of mind; you’ll understand the financial landscape of your project up front and have the data and documentation to successfully defend against IG and GAO audits.

Logapps - Business Case Analysis

A Logapps Business Case Analysis identifies the preferred solution to meet IT mission objectives and presents a clear and unbiased methodology for investment decisions based on performance, cost, schedule, and risk. Clients come away with a better understanding of their requirements from multiple stakeholder perspectives and are better equipped to make important decisions that ultimately guide the course of their project. The Business Case is also an excellent tool to clearly articulate the benefit of investing in the project to stakeholders and other interested parties.

Logapps also produces Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) deliverables which assess competing alternatives based on cost, benefit, risk, schedule, and other metrics. Click here to view our Case Study, Purchased Care Alternatives Analysis – Evaluation of Business Strategic Options.

Logapps - Software Measurement

Software Measurement is the process of measuring software size by quantifying the user functionality from logical design and is a consistent measure across projects and organizations. Logapps delivers functional software size estimates based on the latest IPFUG Counting Practices Manual that supports cost and resource estimation, quality and productivity analysis, and vendor benchmarking.

Logapps provides Certified Function Point Specialists (CFPS) who deliver detailed, function point estimates from requirements, use cases, user stories, or design artifacts. We also provide function point training to help our clients develop an internal software measurement capability.

Logapps has developed an automated function point counting application that greatly reduces the effort required to develop size estimates. Click here to view our Blog on Requirements Analysis Through Function Point Automation.
