At mPower we follow a process oriented development methodology designed to minimize project risks and development time. We focus on business solutions that fulfill business goals, instead of merely providing technical solutions. All our applications are built on the basis of this philosophy.
The approach that we adopt is the spiral iterative methodology, where the project goes through one or more iterations of all project stages. The above presentation gives a brief overview of the process.
We have defined processes for requirement capture, analysis, design, development, testing and deployment. We generate UML diagrams representing the Use Case Model, Analysis Model, Design Model, Implementation Model and Test Model.
In this stage, the customer requirements are gathered. This is done on the basis of information provided by the customer and which could be in the form of documents, existing systems & process specs, on-site analysis interviews with end-users, market research and competitor analysis. The following steps are necessary (but not limited to):
A detailed analysis is carried out from the information in the vision & scope document and feature list. The following steps are necessary (but not limited to):
Application design is developed based on software requirement specification, use case specification, business rules & diagrams and the scope agreed upon in the Requirement Definition stage. The following steps are necessary (but not limited to):
The actual code based on the design is created and tested against design requirements and test cases. The following steps are necessary (but not limited to):
1) The development of code base proceeds as per implementation and design models
2) The application source code is tested according to the test cases and test plan
3) Documentation of processes
4) Creation of Use Case Test results
The developed application is tested through test cases, test plans and user acceptance criteria in the deployed environment.
Developed application is deployed on the live server.
The steps above are iterated through until the final deliverable is completed.
We will submit a detailed project schedule in accordance with the above deliverables. The project schedule will clearly indicate the responsibility of the client and the developer and indicate the dates by which each person will submit their deliverables.
