Software Production and Development

Software development is the process of imagining, specifying, designing, programming, documenting, testing, and debugging in building and maintaining applications, frameworks, or other software components. The software development process, sometimes referred to as the software development life cycle, refers to design or architecture that focuses on the development and production of software products. Each of the policies used describes the manufacturing process and the work required to produce the software. Some software development experts believe that life cycle architecture is too slang, and it is better for authors to use the term software development process
Armin Tajhiz Negar Imen Inc. applies the following steps when developing a project, such as a platform development, ERP customization, or software development
First, the Company organizes a meeting with the client to discuss their needs and requirements and to confirm the project parameters
Next, the Company starts development of the software
After the first version is completed, the project is put online for free test runs
During the testing period, user data is collected, categorized, and prepared for analysis
Next, the Company implements promotional strategies on social media and search engines in order to attract more users for the software
Later, the Company gathers feedback from users, fixes bugs, and updates software features based on the data gained from users' feedback
Next, the Company encourages users to register for VIP memberships in order to gain access to more functions
Finally, the company monitors and maintains the software. Additionally, the Company provides online tech support throughout the duration of the project

The process of software development

A project's implementation refers to the part of the software development process in which programmers code the project. At this stage, based on the extracted requirements and the designed wireframe, the coders start to work and create software modules. In most cases, software is written in the form of small modules to simplify the debugging process. These modules are then placed next to each other to obtain a single product. Software testing is an important part of the software production process. This part of the process helps to identify system problems quickly. Documentation is done at all stages of the project, such as software internal design to determine system goals, future maintenance, and system upgrades even if the project is completed. This documentation may also include writing the structure of the software snippet, the appearance of the internal and external application. It is very important that everything is documented in the project.
One of the most important processes related to software development is estimating and analyzing the requirements of the target system. Customers typically have a conceptual, abstract, and vague idea of what they want, and often do not know exactly what features their software should have and what functionalities it needs. At this stage, ambiguous, unknown, and even contradictory requirements are identified by software engineers. At this stage, a general and prototype sample, which is more of a concept sample, may be prepared for the customer to gain a general understanding of the final product. This is mostly done with the aim of reducing risks and accurately identifying requirements. At this stage, the general needs of the customers are first collected to identify and analyze the scope of software development and production to be built, then the documentation is clearly written. These documents are commonly referred to as scope statement or system scope. Some features may be out of the scope of the project at the beginning of the project due to financial issues or unclear requirements. If the production and development of software is outsourced (i.e. assigned to other companies), these documents are considered as legal documents. Therefore, in the event of any legal dispute or ambiguity about the obligations given to the user, these issues will be clarified.
Software deployment and delivery are performed after various quantitative and qualitative tests have been performed, which in fact refer to the process of publishing, selling or any kind of distribution for the final work environment. Concerning quantitative testing, companies resort to alpha and beta testing, which is a time-consuming process and can sometimes take up to a year for the final product to be ready for market. Software training and support is another important software production process that unfortunately some software companies do not pay attention to it. It does not matter how much time and planning is taken by the software development team to create the software, if the end user cannot use the software, the product is not very valuable. Users typically resist change and avoid adventure in unfamiliar environments, so it is important to provide training classes for new software users during the deployment phase. Maintaining and upgrading software to cover uncovered issues, or new requirements that may arise may take much longer time, even longer than the original software development period. This step may require adding new programming codes that is not predicted in the original design of the program to resolve unseen issues or problems, or the user may request another major operation or new programming would be performed to meet new needs. If the maintenance cost of the maintenance phase is more than 25% of the cost of the previous phase (implementation), it is likely that the overall quality of the previous phase had been very poor. In this case, project managers must consider rebuilding the system (or part of the system) before maintenance costs become uncontrollable.
