Design Review Checklist
Testing and Deployment

Design Review Checklist

Based on your group discussion, you will develop a design review checklist to ensure that the design addressed all the requirements the customers requested. This would be done before actual development starts. The review checklist that will be developed should be aligned with the development methodology chosen. This could include but not limited to:

Task schedule
Peer review
Feature review
Meeting Schedule
Deployment and Testing schedule

Besides your checklist, you will include a summary of the discussion you held as a group.

Testing and Deployment

Now that you have completed the design review, and your system is built. It will be time to verify that all is functioning as expected.

Develop a checklist for testing the Application before it is deployed into Production.

The checklist should include but not be limited to the following:

Use a cross-section of users who can verify that the functionalities are available based on the system requirements
Verify that accessibility is available based on design requirements
Data migration process functionality if that is a part of the design process

Develop a plan and time frame for production deployment.

This must include the following:

System installation and configuration
Data migration schedule
Schedule of system downtime
Cross-section of users for testing immediately after the cut-over
Fallback plan if planned cutover does not succeed
