From MIKE2.0 Methodology
Mike2 content model supporting assets.jpg
Supporting Assets are reusable building blocks that provide the requisite detail to complement the MIKE2.0 Methodology. Many of the activities within the methodology involve sample assets to which end-users can refer during the implementation process. There are a number of different types of Supporting Assets:
- Deliverable Templates are framework documents that can be used on any project implementation. Unlike Tools and Technique Papers that focus on process, Deliverable Templates provide a document structure that defines the output of an activity and its tasks.
- Capability Statements are overview presentations, selling messages, and client and vendor cases studiesrelated to the MIKE2.0 Methodology. They encourage users to take a MIKE2.0 approach.
- Software Assets on the Open MIKE2.0 site are open source software artifacts that can be used as part of the overall methodology. Users of the MIKE2.0 Methodology may also wish to house private software assets mapped into the overall organising framework provided by MIKE2.0. Vendors can also map in their product sets into MIKE2.0 through MIKE2.0 Vendor Solutions.
- Engagement Management Assets provide recommended team structures, estimating models, and starter project plans for conducting Information Development projects. Engagement Management Assets are often MIKE2.0 Private Supporting Assets. However, some of the former are available on the open methodology site.
- Project Examples are example deliverables (both document- and software-based) that have been used in Information Development implementations. They can provide guidance for project implementations.
Substantial additions/changes to the Overall Implementation Guide and Solution Offerings are typically driven through the creation of Supporting Assets. Guidelines for contributing to the methodology define this process.
