This is recommended for projects with a software design document that allows the software development to commence soonest.
A Software Development Scope includes:
- Developer Coding
- Developer Implementation
- Developer Unit Testing
A well-defined design document is crucial for this approach as any changes, new findings to the work scope, and/or change in target objectives after the project has commenced will likely impact the previously quoted fees and proposed schedule.
Engagement: In general, most projects require an average of 8 to 12 weeks.
Payment: Milestone basis
Note: A copy of the source code (“as is”) for the software developed will be provided to the client upon receipt of the full payment of the project.
