Planning and implementing MOM 2005 starts with gathering the business and technical requirements that the operations management solution is expected to fulfill. These requirements come from the key stakeholders in your company. Be sure to include the technical staff, business management, executive management, and anyone else who has a vested interest.
Once you have these requirements, start the engineering process to map the MOM 2005 features to the requirements. This process results in a MOM 2005 design document. The next step is to build a proof-of-concept installation for MOM 2005 to verify your engineering design, gain valuable hands-on experience with the product in your environment, and validate your build and operations procedures. The whole point of the test environment is to mitigate risk.
Complete your MOM 2005 project with the production implementation. This can be a long process, but all the preparation and testing has led to this. Once this is complete, your company moves into monitoring and maintaining activities—this is where MOM 2005 will earn its keep.
