TeraTech has adopted the standard Fusebox Lifecycle Process (FLiP) methodology for managing the design and development of new software systems.
The FLiP mehtod described below is the process for identification of system requirements through an interactive engagement with the client and system users. It has proven effective in reducing the often expensive efforts to identify system requirements and obtain client approval and authorization.
Web design and implementation in ColdFusion with Fusebox has been greatly simplified with the development of the Fusebox Lifecycle Process (FLiP). The TeraTech approach for new system development has combines some of the features of the FLiP process to create a robust and flexible set of design methods. FLiP provides a process for discovery of design requirements and obtaining client approval which reduces risks associated with traditional design systems.
THE TWO FUNDAMENTAL IDEAS BEHIND FLiP
-The first is to use a process that is, at all times, closely tied to client feedback.
-The second is to encourage inexpensive changes in the design early in the process, resulting in a reduced need for changes later in the process, when those changes become progressively more expensive.
