Quick comparison: AIM Vs OUM

A reader asked a very good question, how OUM differ from AIM in term of deliverable ? Considering the fact of Implementation project phases how and what is percentage you can consider as per OUM curves?

If you already practiced AIM's methodology you will not find a very big difference, majority of task and deliverable remain same, but they reclassified under different Process. Lets take a quick look, if you take first on Phases then AIM was based out of 6 phases where as OUM only 5.

When you compare the process ,12 Processes was mentioned in AIM , where as 14 process is documented in OUM (Implement Focus) as per list and figure below.


AIM - 12 Process

OUM (Implement Focus) - 14 Process
  1. Project Management
  2. Business Process architecture
  3. Business Requirement Definition
  4. Business requirement definition
  5. Application & technical architecture
  6. Module Design & Build
  7. Data Conversion
  8. Documentation
  9. Business System Testing
  10. Performance Testing
  11. Adoption & Learning
  12. Production migration
  1. Business Requirements
  2. Requirements Analysis
  3. Analysis
  4. Design
  5. Implementation
  6. Testing
  7. Performance Management
  8. Technical Architecture
  9. Data Acquisition and Conversion
  10. Documentation
  11. Organizational Change Management
  12. Training
  13. Transition
  14. Operations and Support

Coming to second part of his question, here is Breakup of Activity in typical Implementation Project

Next post will see the different documents and will do a key mapping with AIM's deliverable.
