  • Analysis: Once we have a document with all the required design elements and end-user requirements, we analyze the information we’ve gathered and begin the process of designing the product on paper.
  • Development: The next stage is to develop the product based on the design. This involves implementing functionalities, coding the product, conducting tests, and debugging.
  • Delivery: Finally, the product is delivered to the customer. The customer can review the product and offer feedback for further improvements.
