QMP consists of four major phases that ensure clients get
the most effective solution possible:
essential part of every project is to fully understand what
the technology is required to accomplish. Crescent explores
and delves into a business and technology solution by first
analyzing and understanding the requirements of a project.
During this phase we will collect, review, and analyze all
of the assets available to us by the client and identify
any drivers or restrainers that will have an impact on our
approach. Deliverables for this phase are included in the
Needs Assessment and Requirement Documentation
(Project Scope Kit) that informs the development process.
Over an approximate two to three week time frame, we will
create the following project documentation:
Final project schedule
Contract & final fee estimates
associated with this phase are billed upfront on a time
and material basis.
is an ongoing process of reviewing, installing and testing
Crescent's solutions on client's system prior to delivering
a fully tested and debugged system. Prototyping allows client
to test system updates throughout the project cycle and
confirm if they satisfy client's requirements. The focus
during Phase II is on design development. Deliverables
for this phase may include:
Design studies. This includes logical and physical data
modeling, database security architecture, data access design,
Design comps (look, feel, navigation, user interface).
Database prototype (final creative direction)
Phase III, production and engineering are underway. We
create a preliminary alpha product for our internal
quality control that is then followed by development of
a beta for client’s internal team review. Initial
round of application data conversion and/or migration is
completed in client beta. Once we have received comments
from your team, the content is frozen and final revisions
are made to the database.
phase is set aside for the logistics associated with serving
the client’s application as well as testing and training.
Each individual component of the client’s application is
tested against the functional requirements document to assure
its proper functionality. During this phase we make preparations
Quality Assurance – QA testing ensures
product performs and functions as envisioned by client.
Performance Testing – Performance
is concerned with how an application will handle user traffic
during peak use periods. Careful attention to performance
requirements, and then testing to ensure compliance to those
performance requirements, ensures a Web site solution that
is designed, deployed, and ready for success!
Usability – Usability tests can often discover problems
and issues that are not immediately apparent. Crescent uses
"task-based" usability testing, where a sample
of end-users is asked to complete predefined tasks: observations
are then made of the user's method of achieving those tasks.
Confusion points and mistakes are recorded and analyzed
and corrective changes in the design are made.
Training – At client site or outside training facility
