Control: Often, the cost of product development is not a main issue, but rather it's the uncertainty of the cost that is the root of the problem. We assist in improved definition of development costs and reduce uncertainty over time. We recommend fixed-cost basis engagement model, provided that the project has sufficient definition and T&M engagement model when requirements are dynamic.
