Once the problem has been clearly defined, focus shifts to the design of the actual solution. It is this Design stage that bridges the chasm between product concept and structured implementation. A design may require using appropriate technologies to create a completely new product, or may entail integrating new capabilities into a current system.
In refining the details of a solution design, C-Sharp carefully evaluates several factors. First, the design must address the full scope of the problem definition. Second, it must minimize both implementation time and risk to the client. Finally, the design must employ tools and methods appropriate to the solution, not just the hottest new technologies.
For all projects, C-Sharp provides a Project Plan and Project Schedule which detail the following design parameters:
- Product architecture, components, interfaces, and data
- Description of how the product development will be done
- List of deliverables and milestones and associated dates
