We continuously work with the highest levels of accuracy to meet the changing requirements of our customers and counter the challenges of rapidly-growing market. We strictly follow on three principal development methods namely agile, waterfall and prototyping while executing projects. The selection of the model depends on the project’s nature of and client’s requirements.
Agile model helps to minimize risk by developing application in short time boxes, called iterations. Each iteration is like a miniature software project of its own. Here the requirements may keep changing. An Agile Model is accurate, consistent, detailed, simple and comprehensible. It is intended to be a compilation of values, principles, and practices for modeling software that can be applied on a software development project in a more flexible method than traditional modeling methods.
AT CIPL, we follow agile model for the risk-laden projects. Projects that do not have clearly defined requirements and where the early version of developed software may face evolving market challenges. We reduce development time, deliver responsive software solutions and work in tandem with our clients to better market their products and better meet their growing demands. Starting from planning to designing and coding to testing; we follow a systematic process to execute.
Our underlying principles in adopting the agile methodology are:
- Ensuring customer satisfaction through continuous delivery of workable software solutions.
- Developing software and delivering solutions in short time boxes (in weeks than months)
- Continuous collaboration among team members to successfully execute the projects
- Responding to change requirements quickly to counter market challenges
- Conducting regular meetings to discuss the improvements, suggest new additions and betterments
Our product engineering team has been successfully delivering quality solutions to clients with dissimilar business requirements using a set of productive agile methods namely Adaptive Software Development, Scrum, Agile Unified Process, Test Driven Development.
Waterfall model is also known as Classic Life Cycle Model or Linear Sequential Model. It is best suitable when the requirements are clearly defined. Here a one step a time approach is followed. The waterfall model is a chronological development process where development is seen as flowing steadily downwards like a waterfall.
At CIPL, we follow waterfall model especially for the small scale projects. Here, a sequential development approach is adopted to judge the phase-by-phase progress. Each phase in this framework runs naturally, one next to the other without overlapping the development phases. We start from requirement analysis and specification, create design essentials, implement, conduct testing and integration, welcome partner feedback and bring the necessary changes and then go for operation and maintenance. Project guidelines are strictly followed to bring accuracy and erase errors in development phase. Plus, strict reviews after each stage of development are considered vital for successful project execution.
Prototyping model applies when the requirements are not detailed. A prototype of the application is provided to the client and accordingly the requirements are refined. This model works best in situations where not all of the project requirements are known in detail ahead of time. It is an iterative, trial-and-error process that occurs between the developers and the users
We employ prototyping model in situations when requirements relating to processing needs, input to the system, development structure, system features and capabilities etc., are less defined or not known at all; initially at the beginning of the project. This model facilitates collaboration with clients to develop better products. Without first requiring the information as a whole, we systematically build simplified version of the planned system and deliver it to clients for their understanding and review. Once changes relating to the proposed system become known to us, we start implementing the solution by bringing necessary and essential changes. The successful execution of prototyping model heavily relies on customer feedback that structurally shapes the proposed system. We begin with requirement gathering and design, build prototype and present it to clients. After evaluation, the prototype is refined with subsequent changes to the previously made design. Post refining, we engineer products with feedback which is gathered periodically.
