AcuScan, Inc. Case Study

Assumptions/Arguments
Kelly (Chief Engineer of Product Software) thinks that Chris is jumping the gun and not willing to wait to create a sufficient product, considering that AcuScan is already short of staff, no time to come up with a new product and budget. Kelly is also trying to explain that the company does not have amply time to create new features since when creating new features; everything has to be tested to make sure the product is working right before put into retailers hands. Every product and feature that is created must be planned and tested correctly and only one product needs to be into production, based on previous work from two years go. Kelly’s issue is that, there are not enough programmers the workload analysis. In a nut shell, Kelly would like to be more practical and wait and develop the product and not rush anything, since the company has to find ways reduce the budget by 15% and she does not want to over work the existing employees being that the company is short staffed.
Pat (Director of Marketing) thinks the company can work on a budget of 575K, when the Chris (Vice President of Product of Development) talked to Cliff (CEO) said the limit was 400K and Pat thinks it a crunch but does think there can still be a product out by August. So with this issue at hand Chris would like to create a prototype by August so that customers can get a feel of the product. Pat can see the potential of the company’s vision but he would like to look for alternatives such as hiring a outside contracting software but doing this will put the company over its budget. Cliff specifically said it needs to stay at 400K to bring Operation Optimize to life. In a nut shell, Pat wants to create a prototype at least by August but what he fails to realize is the workload being that it is not enough programmers on staff not to mention the new cost contract software.
