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

 

In the event that the combined scoped cost estimates exceed the expected budget, FAQ can recommend developing a minimum viable product.

Develop UX & functionality

Using wireframes, mock-ups, and prototypes, the workflows, screen designs & functionality can be demonstrated visually.

Refine the design, functional requirements

In consultation with the project team, every screen, feature & function will be tabled and discussed one or more times to determine whether to be included in the Scope of Works.

Create a scope of works

The Scope of Works is formed once all has been discussed and determined is required. In addition to all screens, features & functionality being documented, cost estimates are provided for each.

Associate Professor Nigel Harris - AUT

The FAQ team invested a great deal of time and effort into understanding our requirements during the early development stage of the Pau te Hau app. Their detailed scrutinising of how the app would eventually function was actually very formative in our own thinking on what we wanted. This was fundamental to the subsequent production of a bespoke, complex final product requiring detailed technical function, but easy usability. We found the FAQ team very responsive and collegial to work with throughout the process. We’ll be continuing our involvement with FAQ for future app development.

Resourcing Parents

Belinda Power

Not too BIG, not too Small, Just Right. The old Goldilocks line sums up my view on FAQ Interactive team and the work they do. The site I managed out grew the services of our previous developer. FAQ started as the developer for Resourcing Parents website in 2013. I appreciated working with the same reliable developers whose expertise offerred up to date solutions that enable the website to grow and expand over the time I managed the project. Working with FAQ from 2013 until saw Resourcing Parents projects expanded to cover three unique websites and two Apps. I throughly enjoyed and appreciated the time we worked together.

Professor David Lubans, Priority Research Centre for Physical Activity & Nutrition

I have worked with numerous App developers over the last 5 years and found FAQ to be the most professional and easiest to work with. The FAQ team adopted a flexible & responsive approach to our initial ideas and provided expert guidance in the development and refinement of our App. I am extremely satisfied with the final Burn2Learn app and have no hesitation in recommending FAQ to others.
