I would like to request your help in creating a graphical representation of the process/methodology that our software AppLife DNA employs to iteratively create and maintain software specifications.
AppLife DNA is for Software Analysts and Project Leads who recognize the importance of a software specification to a software team as well as the need to maintain it. Our Product centers the entire specification authoring process on the requirements of the software project and provides support for continuous, iterative authoring and effective communications as changes are made.
The target audience for this graphic are analysts and software decision makers being introduced to AppLife DNA for the first time.
What I am looking for is an image that can be used in a brochure, on the website, in an e-newsletter. One that matches or compliments the basic coloring of our web site. At a mere glance, the image should clearly represent a circular or iterative process to the viewer.
We are targeting software professionals and I'd like the imagery to have a professional look.
The basic process is:
1. Brainstorm / elicit Requirements
2. Add and Categorize requirements
3. Select a version and define each requirement within Sections
4. Generate specifications (Standard or Comparisons)
Here is the product information page:
And here is a tutorial/walkthrough from the product help system that would be worthwhile to read.
As the Project Analyst/Lead uses AppLife DNA they enter/import requirements, do their work, and then export spec docs in Word, Adobe Acrobat, or Html format. The graphical depiction of the process should visually represent the importing / exporting that occurs in the process as this allows our solution to integrate cleanly into existing processes.
And here is sketch that I made of the process. Use it only for understanding the process only.
Please look at this sketch and create a design based on it. This will hopefully simply the intent and more designers will elect to join the contest.
Feel free to post comments. I'll respond promptly.
