Overall, the project has been very successful. For the first time ever at EAB Healthcare all of the parties involved with the development process were able to work together to solve a business problem. It was great to have the team work together from start to finish while allowing individual groups to take over, where needed, in their own subject matter areas, such as the database designers building the database design. Using one language and notation made it easy for the teams to communicate, and the developers saw the biggest ad vantage in building the database queries needed by the application. The database designers saw that change can be good, and they picked up some valuable information from the common requirements. Also, by changing to a new modeling language they can now quickly understand and visualize more database elements than ever before. The analysts were able to get input into their de signs from every party involved that would be using them. That made the requirements true to life. The requirements were not just artifacts that would never be examined but elements of the design used by everyone involved. The teams eagerly look forward to using their newly developed UML skills on their next project.
