FAQ & Glossary:
Specification (Spec): A
detailed and comprehensive plan laid out for the entire
project. This is by far the most important part of
any project - good planning eliminates problems later.
(PM): The PM liases with the client, creates the
project spec and manages the entire completion process.
(QA): These are the processes and steps used to
check the quality matches the clients needs. We build
QA into every stage of development.
What are revision
phases? These are stages in the development for
correcting errors, bugs or implementing improvements.
Why a 2nd coder
and an outside coder for QA? The 2nd coder is
in the office, and hence more likely to keep any critical
assessment limited to obvious bugs. The coder from
another GCT office is not someone with a personal
relationship to the original coder - allowing for
more impartial critical assessment.
