ASSESSING THE QUALITY OF THE COMMUNICATIONS HARDWARE OF A DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
AbstractThe subject matter of the article is the factors that increase the efficiency of internal communications by selecting high-quality hardware. The goal of the article is to build a model for assessing the quality of hardware to be used in the communication processes of a development project. The objectives of the study are to consider the communication process to identify factors that improve its efficiency; to analyze the existing approaches to assessing the hardware quality to select equipment to be used in the communications of a development project; to identify the most important quality characteristics of communications hardware that support the communication process of a project; to build partial and generalized functions for assessing the quality of hardware as the elements of supporting the processes of internal communications of development projects. The following general scientific methods are used – the systems analysis, decision theory, the theory of utility. The following results are obtained: the approach is proposed that enhances the communications efficiency of a development project by selecting high-quality hardware when planning communications; the analytical dependence is suggested for assessing the functional completeness, which enables predicting the expected functions depending on the cost of communications hardware; the generalized model is proposed for assessing the hardware quality that enables estimating the level of quality depending on the cost and time of operation. Conclusions. The analysis of the communication process of a development project was carried out. This enabled identifying the factors that increase the efficiency of the project internal communications, computer systems being considered as such factors. The approach that enhances the efficiency of communications by selecting hardware is proposed. The generalized model of quality assessment was developed; this model combines the cost and time characteristics of hardware and enables obtaining estimates to substantiate a decision when planning communications of a development project and selecting hardware. The obtained results can be used when creating a plan for managing the communications of a development project.
