To begin with…

What is offshoring?

Why offshoring followed in the Industry?

- Cost Reduction

- Efficient use of skilled labors

- Focus is on core competence and innovation

Challenges in offshoring

Challenges in offshoring

What are the risks in offshoring?

- Geographical risks

- Project risks

- Infrastructure and Operational risks

Quality and Productivity consideration.




The production or delivery of more products or services with less effort and less cost in a shorter time period with the better quality[1].

Productivity = Output produced by the process

Input consumed by the process

Productivity conceptual model

Productivity Conceptual Model

  • Inputs

  • People – Experience, Knowledge,Skill

  • Management

  • Processes

  • Systems ,Tools and Materials


  • Outputs

  • Improved Services

  • ReducedCosts

  • Increased Volume

Improving quality of high level design

Improving Quality of High Level Design

Existing Approaches in Capgemini for Analysis, Design and Architecture

- CASA – Capgemini Acceleratorfor Software Architecture

LSPCM analysis as a quality gate for High Level Design

- LSPCM – LaQuso Software Product Certification Model

Casa c apgemini a ccelerator for s oftware a rchitecture

What is CASA?

- Capgemini Acceleratorfor SoftwareArchitecture

Aim of CASA

- “Building the Product right”.

Laquso software certification model lspcm

LaQuso Software Certification Model (LSPCM)

What is LSPCM?

- Rulebased software product certification model.

What LSPCM contains?

- Product areas

- Properties of product areas

- Certification Criteria (CC) for all product areas

[CC1]Completeness [CC2]Uniformity


- SpecificCriterias (Rules)

- Certification levels

Research goals

Research Goals

Suggest improvements for High Level Design in the context of offshoring

- LSPCM Certification Model


- Case Studies

Side goals

Side goals

Improve productivity

- Analyzinginfluence of high level design quality.

- Analyzing the split in activitiesbetweenonshore and offshore teams.

Research question

Research Question

What aspects of the software artifact High Level Design determine the quality of offshored software development?

Side Questions:

- How can quality of high level design influence project’s productivity?

- How can split in activities between onshore and offshore team influence on the project’s productivity?
