Hi,

I am trying to create a simple yet robust development lifecycle for my organization. I do not want to create unnecessary artifacts and steps.

Has anyone created a simple yet effective lifecycle with the corresponding artifacts?

I have thought of something like this:


Pre-requisites
-----------------------
- ETL Framework & Templates
- ETL Standards
- DW Standards (SQL, Oracle etc)
- Source Code Control Standards

Requirements Gathering
-----------------------
- Data Requirements
- Sources of Data
- Subject Area/Business Processes

Requirements Analysis and Design
---------------------------------
- Bus Matrix
- Test Scenarios
- Data Contract (Establish Interface requirement)
- Business Rules
- Transformation Rules
- Solution Design

Data Modelling
-----------------------
- Conceptual Model
- Logical Model
- Physical Model
- Detail Data Design
- Data Dictionary

ETL
------------------------
- ETL Specification
- Source to Target Mapping

Development
-------------------------
- DW Objects
- ETL Packages
- Load Data (Execute Packages)
- Unit Test
- Code Walkthrough (Peer Reviews)
- Scheduing (Enterprise Scheduling Tool)

Testing
------------------------
- UAT
- Test Cases
- User Guide

Implementation
-------------------------
- Release Register
- Source Safe
- Implementation Manual

One of my all time favorites (because it uses a football analogy):

Collapse whatever is too detailed. Also, Larissa Moss and Laura Reeves are two of the all time greatest BI/DW project managers. Check out some of their stuff too.
