CAMS Architecture

The CAMS process architecture is made up of the following:

- CAMS repository: This holds all the principles and practices that are sourced from business, formal (planned), and at Agile levels. The repository is maintained and updated independent of the actual project work. Elements from the repository can be prefabricated as a process map. Such a repository is ideally owned by the center of excellence for CAMS.

- Configuration of CAMS: This is the drawing of relevant elements from the CAMS architecture and repository into an instance of a process. The process maps of CAMS are embedded in the iterations and increments of the overall CAMS life cycle. Apart from project-level usage, such CAMS configuration is of importance in a large transformation program. This is so because large-scale transformations become an integral part of the organization's business strategies that go beyond a project or two.

- Enactment of CAMS: This is the application of the method and strategy in practice. This enactment is dynamic, and continuously updates the configuration of the method. An organization adopts CAMS, configures it, and then undertakes its enactment in real-life transformation.

- Measurement with CAMS: This refers to the metrics and measurements during and after enactment. Analysis of the measures provides information on project velocities, defect rates, and rework. Thus, measurement and the data resulting from post-project reviews become an excellent source of information for the center of excellence for CAMS. Insights gained during a project (or an iteration) are enhanced and supported by metrics and measurements in CAMS.
