The development process is a collection of rules and practices that help to connect tech, non-tech team members, and project stakeholders to turn your exceptional concept into a specific product or solution for software. The development process consists of individual stages, which are: brief, initial valuation, workshops, wireframes, specification, and kickoff.
Brief as a start of Development Process
A brief is a form of questions and answers. It’s a crucial tool that facilitates clear and accurate communication at the beginning of the design process and helps understand the product you envisioned and the challenges that it will solve. It is also a contribution to the valuation and work planning.
This process’s primary hint is to quite broadly assess the time and expenditures of the project based on the brief. It allows you to predict the project timeline so that investors can arrange the release date and the next steps. For either of the parties, the initial valuation is not binding but allows the budget to be calculated at an early stage.
The workshop’s primary goal is to collect the information and materials needed to create the
initial technical specification and mockups, including business and technical analysis of the product. During the workshop, a team can conduct technical and business research of the product and move on to the next step of product development. It is also time for any additional technical and non-technical subjects connected with the project to be addressed and identified. Investors should have full visibility into the entire process after the workshop.
The goal at this stage is to create wireframes of a page or an application showing what elements of the interface will exist on personal views and how they will work. It’s also the time for the QA team to analyze wireframes to ensure that user flow is intuitive and all functional elements are appropriately placed and described. Wireframes allow us to understand the functionality of the application/website.
A specification is a set of documented requirements to be satisfied by a product. It identifies the expected result of the implementation. It contains goals, features, and details the team needs to turn your vision into reality.
The whole involved team participates in a series of introductory meetings, where the Project Manager, product analyst, and UX designer present the project’s vision to everyone involved. It is time to go through the entire specification together and clear any doubts. When everyone is familiar with the project, a start date is set, and the team starts working together.
