  • Abstract

    This 2014 TSP Symposium presentation describes how basic Team Software Process (TSP) principles were used to bring the Smart Grid Maturity Model (SGMM) project under control. The SGMM project is a non-software project composed of geographically dispersed, part-time resources from multiple departments within the organization. This presentation follows the journey of the SGMM from conducting an initial project launch, through developing two version releases of the SGMM product suite. We discuss how the team first got its schedule under control, then focused on quality and cost. We pay particular attention to how the MS Project was used to budget and track project costs, including manpower, travel, subcontractors, and all other expenses. We also discuss how other aspects of the TSP were tailored to our situation, including roles, lessons learned, and weaknesses with our approach.
