SCOPING & CONSULTING.
Scoping, planning & designing your web application or mobile app.
In order to develop software efficiently, a detailed set of plans & guidelines should be created, prior to commencing development.
This is known as a Scope of Works and it outlines all functionality, design and required outcomes for the software that is to be developed.
Scoping starts with requirements gathering, which involves several meetings with all relevant project stakeholders to determine the exact requirements in fine detail. This process usually occurs over several weeks, until everything has been discussed, decided and documented.
The scoping team includes chief designer, business analyst, project head & technical director, all based in Sydney.
Through a series of meetings calls and emails, all feature workflows and design preferences are discussed with the client in detail.
Design starts with Wireframes, that enable screens to be laid out quickly and with all functional elements included. In some cases, wireframes can be used to form a basic prototype of the web application or mobile app.
Once the layout has been finalised, some key screens would be mocked up, in line with the finished product.
Throughout the process, client input is critical and every screen, feature & function, will be tabled and discussed in detail one or more times to determine whether to be included in the Scope of Works.
Scope of Works.
The Scope of Works is formed once all has been discussed and determined. The document outlines the project as a whole as discussed and contains:
- List of all features (description)
- Technical analysis
- Wireframes & mock ups
- Cost breakdown by feature
- Developer resources required
- Development timeline
