At Alphalinx, a standardized software development methodology helps us to provide very cost-effective and efficient business solutions. The following would give a better understanding of the entire design and development of the software solution:

Problem analysis & requirements gathering

Requirement documentation

Technical architecture

Design

Incremental development

Testing

Implementation & training

    Maintenance

           

                                                 

                                                             Software Development Methodology

  PHASE-1 (PROBLEM ANALYSIS & REQUIREMENTS GATHERING)

Our Software Analysts conduct Joint Requirement Study (JRS) sessions with the client to understand the problem and to unearth all the requirements to solve the problem. These are brainstorming sessions that help determine the user requirements & business rules in order to have the better solution. Quick Prototype of screen layouts are used for role- playing.

PHASE-2 (REQUIREMENT DOCUMENTATION )

After conducting the requirement study, a comprehensive well documented Software Requirement Specification document (SRS document) will be prepared according to the IEEE standards. It clearly specifies the functional and performance requirements of the system. It also specifies the hardware and software requirements with clear information about the design constraints. This document will be used to validate the system after the development process.        

PHASE-3 (TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE )

Our Technical Architects advise the client on options available to him with respect to architectural approaches and technology solutions for project implementation.

PHASE-4( DESIGN )

Based on the architecture and technology chosen, the development team of Programmers, graphic designers and project managers draft a development plan for the project with cost and time estimates. This will be followed by detailed system design by the Design specialists.

PHASE-5 (INCREMENTAL DEVELOPMENT )

 This is the stage where the system starts getting the shape. Alph@linx builds the application in progressive phases or increments. Incremental delivery permits experimentation of complex solutions during the course of development. This approach facilitates modifications through hands-on exposure to the delivered increment.     

 PHASE-6 ( TESTING )

 Testing has become a business-critical part of the software development lifecycle and needs a good strategy in order to have effective and efficient solution. Testing is an essential part of the software development life cycle. It is a structured way of validating that, requirements and specifications have been properly implemented in a solution and proves whether a solution will meet a customer's functional, technical, operational, flexibility, performance, reliability, usability and maintenance expectations. Testing is, therefore, a critical means for reducing software delivery risks. At Alph@linx, Separate team of Quality Analysts will be carrying a comprehensive testing of the system being developed in different phases. So that, the Solution is free from all sort of bugs.

 PHASE-7 ( IMPLEMENTATION AND TRAINING )

 Once the system is developed incrementally, after each phase, the part of the system will be installed on the application servers and comprehensive training is extended to the client's IT/MIS personnel to administer and maintain it. So that, the user can efficiently use the System solution. Along with installation manual, User manuals will be provided to the client to handle the application without any difficulties.

 PHASE-8 ( MAINTENANCE )

 This phase is initiated after the system has been installed and accepted by the user. This phase addresses all the modifications to be done to the system in order to enhance the performance and user friendliness. This phase continues until the system is operating smoothly in the client's environment in accordance with????
