customers. Also we need to identify all the risks and find the solution for them.
Plan: We will provide a list of plans after we analyze the project requirement,
which will be the guideline of our further work.
Infrastructure & Facilities: We provide infrastructure and facilities to meet our customer's need by
giving them our proposal based on the project requirement.

lack of knowledge about the project and origins, the outsourcing project will
become a disaster. It is extremely hard for engineers working on unfamiliar
industry. Five types of Knowledge transfer are required: Skill, Process, Domain, Work
specifications and culture norms.
Pilot Project: Doing a pilot project is an effective way to reduce risks, especially when for two
companies cooperate at the first time. A pilot project must have the

Responsibility transfer: For a new project, the most important thing is transferring responsibilities
from the PM of the client to the counterpart of royaleclipse.com.
For an ongoing project, our methodology is to transfer the responsibilities peer
to peer. The best time for transferring core development task is after transfer
is finished completely, when the team is stable and the operating is smooth.
Statement of Work (SOW) guides the operation of Our ODC. When Our ODC receives the SOW, the project team analyzes it first and discusses with the customer till the customers make sure our ODC team fully understand the SOW. After that, the effort estimation will be given and submitted to the customer. If objected, a new cycle discussion will be incurred until an agreement is reached. Also, we will set up our work plan in terms of this SOW, which should be approved by customers. During the implementation and test phases, we deliver codes and reports every day. When the work of SOW is completed, customer will execute the UAT according to the defined criteria. If failed, we will investigate and rework it.
