  • 1 Brief Description

    PERFORM is the international system development and quality management system of the CAP Gemini group. PERFORM combines standards, procedures, techniques for the quality assurance, the project management, and the development, and is compatible with the ISO 9000 standard. PERFORM is modular, i. e. it is structured into application areas and offers special, individual lifecycle process models based on the standard technologies.

    The areas covered by PERFORM are:

    A method compound has been defined for each scope of application supported by PERFORM and was then documented in a reference manual. It refers to:

    A method component has been defined in the reference manual for each scope of application and has then been documented by means of the following components:

    The methodical components for the scope "Business Applications" and "Technical Applications" are:

    PERFORM was designed by CAP Gemini International Support, Paris, as being in overall charge, and with the national CAP Gemini Organizations as partners. PERFORM is the standard for all CAP Gemini group members and used as a basis when realizing international projects. In Germany, PERFORM is the development standard of CAP debis.

    Tools well established on the market have been selected and integrated for the support of the individual activities and methods in PERFORM. The name of this workbench to PERFORM is PERFORMance.

    2 Tabular Comparison

    The following table compares the basic methods of the GD 251 with the methodical components of PERFORM. In the case where there is no entry in the right column of the table, PERFORM has no corresponding component. Otherwise, an entry refers to the corresponding part in the literature. The entry is explained in section 3 of the comparison. Entries identified with (*) refer to basic methods completely covered by PERFORM. These are not further explained in section 3.
