Software Development Methodology
Orion’s Development Methodology is based upon recommended best practices from Rational Unified Process and Microsoft Solutions Framework. We practice a milestone based iterative development model.

During project planning phase, Use Case and Activity diagrams are created along with supporting Functional Specifications. During design phase, business diagrams and documents are translated into technical Class and Sequence diagrams by architects. During implementation phase, frequent builds are made and distributed to stakeholders for review. During stabilization phase, quality assurance and development teams work closely to achieve progressively shorter Zero Bug Bounce periods. During release management phase, cross-functional teams work together with the clients to ensure successful implementation.
