Application Development




Development Process: Brief

Define: - First is to define detailed scope of the requirements. This is done through a detailed study by the project manager to know the requirements. This process starts even before the project is awarded to us as our estimates are based on the amount of work involved and technological challenges. To estimate these we keenly study the project and the application scenario in real world before giving a quote Plan and design: - Once the project is awarded to us, a SRS (Software Requirements specifications), Prototype with supporting High Level Designs (HLD), User Interface, Class Diagram and Database Diagrams are prepared. These design documents and prototype are sent to clients for approval. Develop: - Upon approval, we start coding. All our codes are well commented and follow naming conventions. We have a well defined multi-tier architecture and each developer adheres to it. Test: - Testing phase begins with the planning. As soon as HLD is frozen, we prepare test plans and cases. Application is tested parallel to development making sure that there are no errors. Once the development is completed, the application is tested from scratch to make sure all modules are well integrated. Debug: - The testing results are then converted in actions for debugging and solving the bugs. Once all the bugs are fixed by the developers Quality team verifies the bugs and reports any reproduced bugs. This process continues till all bugs are fixed.
Deployment: - Project leader reviews the application and makes sure that the application fulfils the Service Level Agreement (SLA) and is in line with other functional and non functional requirements. Upon approval application is deployed to the production server.

Features of Development Lifecycle

Features of Development Lifecycle: Brief

Prototyping: - Documents are always necessary in a well defined process but it is very difficult for customers to figure out upfront what they will get for their money. Prototypes help the clients to have a clue of what will be delivered after coding.

Module releases: - Every project is divided into multiple modules. As soon as a module is completed we send the demonstration version to the customer. This enables customers to track progress and notify us with any change in flow
Periodic review and update to the client: - Project is reviewed by the project leader every week and update is provided to the client about the schedule, completed targets and planned targets for the next week. Checklist method: - From planning to deployment, we follow checklist method, dramatically reducing the commonly made mistakes made by the developers while coding, releasing and deploying. Well defined architecture: - We have developed a well-defined architecture. This helps us to train newly recruited developers and leaders quickly. Since same architecture is followed in all the projects, it enables us to manage manpower resources efficiently as everyone is familiar with the architecture and can be deployed on any project in no time. Common Libraries: - We have coded a set of libraries which the developers uses while coding the application. These are common functions required while coding of any project. This helps expediting the development and virtually eliminating bugs as these libraries are well tested and optimized. Knowledge management: - Common functions and solutions to challenges and issues are added in our Knowledge management application. We believe in solving a problem or coding commonly used function once. This also helps us reduce the development time.

Features of Development Lifecycle: Brief

Task and bug tracking system: - Tasks while development and bugs while debugging are the most important aspects of the projects.. Generally it becomes very difficult to manage bugs where multiple Quality Engineers and developers are working on an application. For this, we have a project management application to manage/track both bugs and tasks .Use of above referred application with advanced reporting, tracking and auditing features not only makes it easy to manage but also enables improvements in each project. Source code and version control system: -Developing an application without source code and version control is a big risk. We use Visual Source Safe for Microsoft Technologies and SVN for other technologies. Frequent review of SLA and planning documents by Project Leader: - Project leader is responsible for meeting all requirements. Therefore project leader has to review the development and SLA documents regularly to make sure project is on track. The reports are submitted to management in every 15 days.

Quality Control Process: Brief

Quality is the most important part of the development process. We have a dedicated Software Quality Assurance team. The team is responsible for the quality of the applications used in the development process. Each application goes through the process of testing as per well developed checklists.

Once project planning and documentation is completed, the QA team prepares test plans and test cases. These are executed by Quality Testing Engineers.
The application goes through various types of testing like Validation testing, functional testing, performance testing, load testing, stress testing, usability testing and more. Once the bugs are removed, optimization issues and other quality concerns are fixed by the developers. The application is tested by the Quality team again to make sure each and every issue is fixed.

This type of testing is known as regression testing. Any reproduced issue is sent to the developers again for fixing. This process continues till all issues are closed successfully.
To manage this process, we have a comprehensive quality and bug management system. Bugs are tracked closely and developers are answerable if any bug is reproduced two times. The quality process does not end with deployment of the application. Once the application is completed, Quality Manager is responsible for generating report for each developer comparing improvement from the previous project. Developers are answerable for repeated mistakes. This ensures continuous improvement. To conclude Quality is a priority at Classic Informatics Private Limited
