Project Life Cycle Phases
This is the first phase of the project management process where we meet with you to discuss your project objectives and needs. As part of this phase, we go through a series of brainstorming sessions that help refine your project needs. We prepare an initial project scope and provide you high level time and cost estimates. In this phase we discuss proposed approach,risks, different technologies, proposed team structure, and deliverables.
- Business Analysis and Design
In this phase, business analysts and project managers thoroughly analyze requirements and prepare functional specification documents. Functional specifications are then reviewed and approved by stake holders of this project in your organization.
- Technical Analysis and Design
In this phase, the project manager and development team design high level application architecture, define units of work, and produce technical specification documents. QA engineers perform high level QA review and generate a test plan.
- Project Planning
After receiving approval on functional and technical specifications, the project manager works with the project team to produce a project plan with milestones, resource allocation, and a release schedule.
- Development and QA
This is the phase where the development team starts the development process.The project gets developed using progressive milestones/releases and QA testing begins at the end of each individual development milestone. At the end of each milestone, internal acceptance testing and initial reviews can also be performed. In this phase routine status checks are performed and status updates are provided by PM to keep you informed and involved.
- Delivery and Deployment
At the completion of significant project milestones or at the completion of the entire project, project source code and finalized project documentation get delivered to you.
