THE PROCESS - TECHNICAL ENGINEERING
Phase 3

A database structure is created outlining functionality, input fields required, error/success pages, administrative user levels, login, registration, cookies and password issues. Programming for functionality and database-driven elements as described by the database overview/web flowchart begins. Web administration tools and menus are developed. Forms that interact with potential visitors will be created.

The goal of this stage will be to create a robust and dynamic Internet presence with intuitive system features. The scope of work will include the creation of all the staged components. Typically, however, a series of minor revisions and final iterations will take place after the initial build until we have achieved the final functioning component item. The finalized component will be used for integration into the interface.

Alpha testing will be performed internally. Then, a beta version of the website will be uploaded to the staging area showing web page flow of the proposed primary, secondary and tertiary pages. This involves ‘weaving’ the home page with all templates below it to create a ‘clickable’ version of the website.
