Process Development is to create activities for performing tasks. In other words, this is to design stages of work, workflow sequence of software development complete cycle and create activities into phases with standard format.
Process Development design is very challenging task because activities will be followed according to process and if developed process is great then activities will be performed great else might be some mistakes over there with software system.
Process Development should create activities for processes:-
All Phases of development: Activities should be clearly defined for all phases those are required to execute during development process.
Workflow sequence of each phase: Flow understanding is very important before implementation so with workflow sequence clarity is needed to be cleared of each phase.
Task Implementation Flow: Requirement about feature implementation should be very clear to get proper flow understanding about feature so need to define task implementation flow at this stage.
Implementation Methods: Method use is also important to understand process for implementing required task before starting implementation.
Standard Guidelines: Software development should be done with standard guidelines to maintain standard and quality of product. Standard guidelines should always be defined and shared with team to proceed with standard guidelines.
Team Responsibilities: Tasks implementation according to phase such as designing, development and testing should be described with team responsibilities.
Designing Environment: Design implementation complete environment clarity what to be use is needed to describe and share with designing team.
Development Environment: Development implementation complete environment clarity what to be use is needed to describe and share with development team.
Testing Environment: Testing process execution complete environment clarity what to be use is needed to describe and share with testing team.
Software Release: After acceptance of all requirements software release process comes and to give release of software process flow should be defined properly to responsible team with all the acceptance status.
Software Maintenance: Once software is released to client then software maintenance and maintain standard of software comes according to client. Maintenance process with running behavior or if with some changes should be defined very clearly to responsible teams and quality team.
Note:- This is basic information and according to challenges/requirements may be some changes with process development. So, keep learning and practicing.
