The PIIM Process

Integrating best-of-breed management tactics PIIM's unique program methodology creates cost- and time-savings from concept to delivery.

PIIM utilizes a highly specialized methodology for all of its programs and research areas. This method — the Visualization Driven Rapid Prototyping (VDRP) method — significantly integrates innovation into graphical user interface design, user experience design, and technology and systems development.

While most development methodologies introduce low-level technical assessments at the outset, PIIM reserves these until after user definitions, initial design, and visualization work are completed. By enabling PIIM product designers and engineers to collaborate on end-user issues first-and-foremost, PIIM ensures that its programs are user-centric from the start.

Adopting PIIM's program documentation and communication protocols, this process enables crystal clear, highly visualized work products to be created and distributed to all stakeholders — providing a clear picture of program objectives and outcomes from day one.

Typically, procedures are already in place at customer sites, and PIIM will work closely to integrate its Visualization Driven Rapid Prototyping process into existing management and development frameworks. This activity not only ensures a cohesive bond between PIIM and its customer but it provides a solid collaborative foundation between both parties.

Whether PIIM is tasked with ultimately engineering the customer solution or simply injecting user-centric innovation into the program, the Visualization Driven Rapid Prototyping method provides significant enhancement and benefit.
