Do you often wonder what it takes to complete a software project? Have you ever asked why does it take weeks to complete a software project instead of a couple of days?
The biggest reality with a software project is turning the ideas into code which turns into an application which needs to be user friendly. With our projects we like to gather the user requirements first. These can also be known as user stories. Often we are creating a new application or modifying an existing application. In both instances we will always gather the user requirements first.
Above are a couple of pictures where we have documented the user requirements with the user on our whiteboard. Neither of these are large software projects and will take us about two weeks to complete. However, you can start to understand that once the requirements are documented there are always a number of variables which need to be considered. This is where your logic which is your code needs to be quite proficient and skilful.
I consider that one of our main strengths at The RIC Group is our programming team. We have a small programming team at The RIC Group but it can not be underestimated as it has over 35 years of experience. We have been developing packaged software and tailored software for over 10 years as The RIC Group.
Just to let you know, the first picture is the specifications of a project to do with capacity planning software, and the second picture is the specifications of a project to do with assigning pallets of goods to trucks and tracking their delivery.
