A Detailed Overview of our Development Process
Successful custom software development projects evolve and the development process itself must embrace and manage that transformation. A process that is too rigid will miss the end target and inevitably require expensive, time-consuming rework, while a process that is too loose will eventually lose direction, burn unnecessary budget, and never be implemented successfully. Art+Logic utilizes a milestone-driven approach based on proven agile development principles.
- A focused and efficient use of budget
- Visible and verifiable progress
- Frequent opportunities to make refinements
- Cooperative prioritization of work
- Successful results
Milestone 1, 2, N . . .
Each development milestone repeats a pattern that involves:
Code development of the features and functionality defined in the previous milestone. Implementation incorporates:
- Testing: Unit testing, regression testing, and user testing of the milestone features and functionality.
- Bug fixing
Delivery of the features and functionality completed in the 4-to-6 week period allotted to the milestone. Delivery can come in many shapes and sizes, targeted for different purposes. Whenever possible a demonstration will highlight the milestone deliverables.
- Planning documents or UI mockups for approval
- Staging release for interim feedback
- Alpha release for usability testing
- Beta release for end-user feedback
- Production-ready installer
Done in parallel with the implementation and testing efforts, the Project Manager will work with you to plan and define the next milestone of work. Planning includes:
- Assess remaining work
First, we meet with your team to understand the big picture – what are you trying to accomplish? This is a big picture view of the project. The goal of this initial discussion is simply to gain sufficient understanding of your project so that we can give you a rough ballpark idea of cost and schedule that you, in turn, can use for business planning purposes. It’s not an attempt to provide you with a detailed estimate or project plan. Let’s face it, at this point in our relationship, we know less about your project than we will at any other point over the course of our work on your project. Attempting to deliver a detailed estimate before learning even more about your needs and wants would be irresponsible and, frankly, misleading. The rest of our process roughly follows the following outline:
- We collaboratively decide what the heart of the application is, what needs to be done first.
- Looking just at the heart of the application, we collaboratively unpack the requirements, both from a business intelligence and technical perspective. When we’ve all decided on what exactly we’ll be doing and sign off on that, Art+Logic estimates the work and submits that for approval.
- We implement ruthlessly.
- We test ruthlessly, using the test plan developed during the estimation of the milestone.
- We release to you and ask that you, with the test plan and Requirements document in hand, validate the application and provide feedback.
- We reconvene and decide what to do next.
- Repeat until you determine we’re done.
