Planning is crucial and critical
It wouldn't be wrong to say that most software development projects fail due to a simple yet critical reason and that is poor planning. Without proper planning, the project has high chances of running into risks of delays, increased costs and errors.
For our developers the real excitement only comes when the written code starts taking shape. The meticulous planning that we do is never overlooked, no stones are left unturned and no corners are left for assumptions. We know that late retrospection of fixing bugs and errors may have severe effect on cost, time and system stability.
Just to minimise such functional gaps we ensure the following for each of our developers:
A concise as well as clear specification of functionalities is prepared. You can also call it the blueprint. It is basically a written document reflecting exactly what will be delivered by the developers.
Functional model of the software or application that is being created by the developers can be called as the prototype. Even the most creative developer or member of our team may find it difficulty in exactly visualising what the software will look once it is created. The prototype will help them understand about the software in a much better manner. They wouldn't have to struggle.
