Software Development Methodology
Bar Squared follows a full Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) for software development. Once you have chosen Bar Squared for development work, the next steps are simple.
After you submit a Request for Quote to us, we form a core team that prepares vision/scope documents for your project. We envision the overall direction for the project, including determining which features the solution will and will not include, and a general schedule for delivery.
During this phase the team prepares the functional specifications, works the design process through, and prepares work plans, cost estimates and schedules for the various deliverables. This work is carried out by us.
The stage is completed by the signing of a contract. In complicated cases a screen prototype of a new system can also be developed. This allows the customer to review the future system and to give their feedback at an early stage of the development.
Design and Development
Our team accomplishes the building of solution components (code as well as documentation). Our process model combines principles of waterfall and spiral models. We use the best approaches of several standard processes and support different kinds of outsourcing.
Our development process is interactive. That means that customers monitor the progress of development online so they won't be faced with any sudden issues at the end.
In this phase testing is conducted on a solution whose features are complete. Testing emphasises usage and operation under realistic environmental conditions. The team focuses on resolving and triaging (prioritising) bugs and preparing the solution for release.
Testers develop the Test Plan, test cases and scripts, test the system and verify that it operates according to the specification.
After rigorous testing, we launch the application.
Delivery and Support
Bar Squared's team deploys the core technology and site components, stabilises the deployment, transitions the project to operations and support, and obtains final customer approval for the project.
It is not just a Product that is delivered to the customer, it is a Solution.
How We Manage Quality
Bar Squared has been using state-of-the-art Quality Assurance methodologies and practices in all its projects, aiming to deliver error-free software products. This commitment to quality is Bar Squared's core objective as we believe this is the only way to ensure customer satisfaction.
Bar Squared's Quality Assurance system ensures that software processes and products conform to the specified requirements, standards and procedures. Bar Squared has been developing a set of QA guidelines for business processes based on the best industry practices and quality standards equivalent to ISO 9001:2000.
Compliance with established requirements, standards and procedures is evaluated through process monitoring, product evaluation, audits and testing. These activities enable us to measure, assess and enhance the company's functions to ensure efficient performance and high quality project implementation.
