Website development documentation of a web project is a great point to start working on your websites. Documentation quotes on the functional and technical aspects of the project will help save a lot of time and money, since it lends clarity to the concept and eventual vision of how you perceive your website.
Documentation is not necessarily required for a small web project, however, whenever functionality becomes complex or information becomes vast, it helps to organize it and document the structure of the project.
During development, a number of website development document types can play a significant role – these could typically be system requirement documents, system design documents, system architecture documents, functionality or technical documents, Visio diagrams, database schemas etc.During development of a website project, very often it helps to initiate only the documentation aspect of the project, just to get a good grip on the type of man hours and costs you will end up incurring. This exercise helps you plan better and prepare for a long-term plan of action, without too many surprises in the process. Quotes on documentation leading to cost estimation will give you a proof of concept to know whether you’re ready to make the required investment.
