The following business flow diagram depicts the Red Apple
project life cycle functioning.
(1) This first phase, Requirements Definition, is the most critical
phase of the project. Red Apple approaches the project with a clear
understanding of the objectives, and drives towards expected
results. The preparation of the project’s initial requirement
definition, programming specifications and testing recommendations
two resources: A) Technical Architect B) QA Business Systems
Analysis (Client advocate). The Red Apple Project Life Cycle
Methodology approach utilizes the QA resources for both the
requirements definition phase and the QA testing phase.
(2) Red Apple provides detailed Technical Designs document, RAD
documents, the prototyping results and the Programming
Specifications are handed to the Programming Team. The Programming
Team, utilizing the design documents and appropriate industry coding
standards, constructs the project’s automated solution (Project
product and/or service objective).
(3) The Requirements Definition, Detailed Technical design, and
Testing recommendations are now used by the Business Analysis
resources (coming from their Design Team responsibilities to the QA
Team) to prepare the test environment, test cases and test data. The
test scenarios prepared by the QA Team will be at the business
(4) The Programming Team will code and prepare test cases for
technical testing (Unit and Integrated tests) of their program
modules. The Red Apple QA Team will execute all testing scenarios,
identifying and documenting all errors. All QA tested modules will
be prepared for delivery to the client. A QA Team member in some
cases will implement or assist in implementing and performing the
delivery of the project deliverables to the client.
(5) The testing errors identified in QA testing will be assembled
and sent back to programming, identifying failed functional areas.
Programming will correct all errors identified and resubmit a new
program groups to QA for testing using the version control process.
(6) All IT Team members are required to produce weekly status
reports to management. The Project management will produce a weekly
Project status report and present to Red Apple management and the
(7) QA tested project deliverables will be delivered to the client
according to the project schedule and delivery specifications. In
some cases QA personnel will accompany the delivery to implement or
assist in implementation of the deliverables. If any issues are
identified during implementation or acceptance testing, the client
will document the specific problems; using an Red Apple Change Order
documents and returns the documents to the Red Apple Project
Management. Change Orders will be tracked just as Tasks and Issues
are, using the Red Apple issue tracking system.
(8) The problems identified during implementation and deliverable
acceptance will be documented on Red Apple Change Order forms and
submitted to Red Apple Project Management for review and entry in
the Tasks and Issues Tracking System. The requests will be processed
by the project Team and a new or corrected deliverable will be
processed for delivery to the client. Outstanding Change Orders and
internal testing Issues will be corrected and incorporated into new
version releases to the client.
(9) Over the course of the project, the Red Apple project management
team will schedule periodic visits with the client’s project
management to present project status and to identify any outstanding
issues and present previously identified issue resolutions.
