Slash Your Development Cost
Development Cost = Time to Market × Annual Cost per Developer × Development Staff Size
Green Hills Software provides a comprehensive range of products and services that slash the development cost of your electronic product. Development cost is the product of three factors: time to market, annual cost per developer, and development staff size. In order to minimize your development cost you must make independent aggressive efforts to reduce your time to market, reduce your annual cost per developer, and reduce your development staff size.
Slash Your Time To Market
Your development cost is directly proportional to your time to market. The longer it takes you to develop your product, the longer you must pay your development staff, increasing your development cost proportionately. The most effective way to lower your development cost is to reduce your time to market. We provide a comprehensive range of products and services that reduce your development cost by reducing your time to market.
Reduce Your Annual Cost per Developer
Traditionally, embedded software development tools and real time operating systems have been primitive compared to the software development tools and operating systems for desktops, mainframes, and servers. This made embedded programming require much greater skills and experience than ordinary application programming. The limited supply of experienced embedded developers has caused their compensation to rise substantially above the compensation for an ordinary application developer.
Our advanced software development tools and real time operating systems have brought state-of-the-art software development technology to embedded programming, making embedded software development accessible to ordinary application developers. This allows you to use less experienced, less expensive, and more readily available programmers to more efficiently develop software for your electronic products. We slash your development cost by reducing your annual cost per developer.
Smaller Development Staff Size
Higher programmer productivity allows you to accomplish more with a smaller development staff, reducing your development costs. We reduce your development cost by boosting your programmer productivity so that you can get the job done with a smaller development staff.
Industry Standard Product Configurations
Many industries have common requirements that all electronic product must meet. It is far more efficient for us to produce pre-packaged solutions for common problems whose cost is distributed over many customers, than for every electronic product developer to duplicate the effort. Starting with a pre-tested standardized solution for common industry requirements directly reduces your development cost. We can reduce your development cost by providing you with industry standard product configurations.
