Learn. Discuss. Define.
At this phase we learn about your objectives, your business, your customers. A clear, straightforward communication is the key to success for any project – big or small. Cedar Silicon begins each engagement with a deep and extensive analysis of your requirements. At this stage in development we learn everything we can about your project – your goals, your unique assets, your competitors, strengths and weaknesses of existing product and your risks – here we begin to plot an engineering strategy for your project.
Plan. Estimate. Sign Off.
The objective of this phase is to define a clear and achievable road map. At this phase we plot the project requirements into a comprehensive and immediately actionable project plan. Factoring in your project’s unique technical requirements, this road map is carefully assembled to establish realistic project milestones, define a manageable budget, and validate any assumptions. We will work hard to achieve an effective and timely consensus in collaboration with your Product Development Team.
Model. Set the Foundation.
Upon sign off with the Client on a road map, we jumpstart the development by going into a Prototyping and Modeling phase. The functional model or prototype produced at this phase serves as visual guide and initial design sketches for a rapid development outline, an overall layout letting a Client to get the “look and feel” of a project, setting the direction for application’s creative, technological and usability design. At this phase Cedar Silicon team together with the Client analyzes, tests and refines design’s usability for ergonomic, support and organizational factors before we start the full development process. This ensures that product conveys a unique and enjoyable character, leaving a lasting positive impression on Client’s users.
Build. Test. Deliver.
At this phase Cedar Silicon’s technical wizards get to work transforming prototypes created based on Client’s requirements into a fully functional product. Our development team has all the tools and expertise to carry bold ideas into technological reality. In addition to initial functional product, this stage also typically involves user and production testing, integration with third party systems, and long term development and maintenance planning.
Analyze. Pivot. Enhance.
As important as it is, a successful release only represents the beginning of a product life. Now the Cedar Silicon process turns towards long term consistent success and maximized ROI. Using the latest technologies and methods, we may at Client’s discretion analyze and determine how well new product performs with real users, and then, if needed, adjust both design and functionality to capitalize on new product’s features and functions over the long term.
