Build-Out and Production

You can plan, plan, and plan some more, but ultimately a delivery date looms in your future. In the design and prototyping process, you have developed the plans that are the foundation of the site. Build-out, or production, brings together all the elements toward the outcome of a final, complete, and fully tested website, sitting on the client’s server and ready to go live. It is time to work the plan. Your payoff for the planning time will be a more organized, smoother production process. As much as you plan, you will undoubtedly still encounter surprises and obstacles. You will still need to call on your skills in communication, coordination, and cooperation in order to meet your client’s expectations for a high-quality project.
