Case Study
 

To give you a view of the cash-flow benefits in the VDC model, we put together a simple project case study. Three scenarios are presented in this study that involves the completion of a project that would normally take 15 resources to complete. Key costs included in the study include hiring costs for all personnel, training and travel costs as well as conservative resource burden rates.

Three models were inspected in the case study: An all-US 15-person team, a Hybrid 16-person team with US, expatriate and remote resources, and a 16-person ComLSI VDC model. Figures 1 and 2 depict the self-evident, key results of this case study. The database used in the study can be accessed here.
