Using the model

COGIMETRICS® model is used in various situations, with high flexibility:

  • It can be applied to any project, whatever the IS development method;
  • It can be used at any time along the project, including at the very beginning, provided that sufficient information is available - or can be anticipated - to rate the factors.

A basic use can be for instance the rapid assessment conducted by the project Manager, based on his/her own feeling about the situation, without any reporting results reporting.

At the other extreme, COGIMETRICS® can provide an assessment within a full diagnosis for the management (please see diagram hereafter)..
