Software Development Process
Developing a software application goes through the main process, Each stage has a separate goal to achieve the success of the software.
The initial step is the requirement analysis from the client. This helps the developers to understand what exactly the client is needed. Based on the requirement analysis the number of teams required, project delivery date, scheduling, cost estimation will be planned.
After the successful requirement is gathered from the client the next process is planning, here the developer’s team will discuss the project and the milestone delivery then each milestone is divided into tasks. The task will be assigned to the team based on priority.
Once the Task is splitted then the designing will start. In the designing phase, the wireframes will be designed. In the wireframe, we can see how the application screens will look like and with the design styles.
Once the design is completed, then the next phase will be the development. Developers will write the code based on the UI designs. In the Development stage, the developers will perform unit testing to check the functionality of the application. Unit testing helps the developer to fix the bugs at the initial stage of the development.
The application will go through functional and non-functional testing to ensure that the application works fine. The application will go through load testing and security testing. The QA testing team will perform all the testing activities.
Once the application is bug-free the application will be moved to the production environment. Once the application is deployed on the server frequent maintenance activities has to be done to ensure that the application works fine without any errors
