HOMSI, a Home-Office Model for the Software Industry in the Big Cities of Mexico
The Software Industry in Mexico (SIM) is accentuated in large cities. This industry requires thousands of employees who must go to the offices weekdays. However, mobility in large cities is increasingly complicated by two factors: the first is the distance from your residence to the office, that can be from 1 to 30 km away or more, on the other hand, the expenses caused by the transport. The means of transport can be from the worker himself or public transport as: metro, bus, “metrobus”, taxi, etc. In this work, a home-office model is proposed, which suggests that developers go once to the main office and the rest of the weekdays work from your home. The above, is not by default, because they must have the minimum conditions to work in his own house. However, when working in their own home there are benefits such as: saving time and money in the travel and on the other hand, the developer does not suffer stress caused by the daily travel. In the model, a central office is proposed for meetings and training. So that, each developer must have a space in her own home and adapted for a home office. The above, implies having an Uninterrupted Communication Medium (UCM) to be in contact between developers, as well as with the Couch (Co) and the Project Manager (PM). In the results, statistics of travel times and expenses, as well as the effects of traveling to work every day, are shown. We conclude that, the Home-Office Model can achieve more satisfied developers; less stressed can increases productivity in organizations that develop software.
