Work Flow

Ideation

The process starts with designers brainstorming ideas. Since the point at this stage is to get as many ideas as possible out there, they work very quickly with rough pencil & paper sketches. At the end of this stage, the team takes a look at what they’ve got and chooses a few of the most promising ideas.

Wireframing

Wireframes are very fast rough screen mockups which is used to give an abstract idea about how a product going to work. Its created roughly and very fast. It is mostly created on papers and sometimes on computers.

High Fidelity Designs

Designers use Sketch to create High Fidelity Designs mockups based on the initial concepts. Again, the team looks these over and picks one to move to the next stage. Technical design requirements are prepared in this phase by lead development staff that can include architects and lead developers. The Business Requirements are used to define how the application will be written. Technical requirements will detail database tables to be added, new transactions to be defined, security processes and hardware and system requirements.

Prototyping

Prototyping is the core of website development process. It gives an overview of the would-be website and defines the user’s journey. A fully functional wireframe offers a click-through high-fidelity demo version of the website. Also, it could be a quick sketch or a detailed and well-framed vector file that depicts an exact flow of the website’s functionality.

Development

This phase is the actual coding and unit testing of the process by the development team. After each stage, the developer may demonstrate the work accomplished to the Business Analysts and tweaks and enhancements may be required. It’s important in this phase for developers to be open-minded and flexible if any changes are introduced. This is normally the longest phase of the SDLC. The finished product here is input to the Testing phase.

Quality Assurance

Prototyping is the core of website development process. It gives an overview of the would-be website and defines the user’s journey. A fully functional wireframe offers a click-through high-fidelity demo version of the website. Also, it could be a quick sketch or a detailed and well-framed vector file that depicts an exact flow of the website’s functionality.

Deployment

The size of the project will determine the complexity of the deployment. Training may be required for end users, operations and on-call IT staff. Roll-out of the system may be performed in stages starting with one branch then slowly adding all locations or it could be a full blown implementation.
