7. Requirements Checklist
A requirements checklist is simply a condensed version of the requirements you need to deliver before project kickoff and includes anything our team needs for the project: reference images, 3D models, eCommerce integrations, etc.
As part of your onboarding, you can expect your Delivery Manager to review your SOW, which contains a clear outline for your deliverables and the appropriate timelines for each. Let's review each of the deliverables and how you can optimize your prep work.
Whether you have 3D models already or not, you will likely need to provide reference images prior to 3D work starting on your project. These are important for two reasons:
- Our team needs to understand how to model each of the materials and angles for the 3D model to accurately reflect the lighting, texture, and configurable components for each.
- Reference images provide a brand identity that help ensure that model backgrounds and scene lighting work cohesively with your visual brand.
You can review the best practices for taking reference images in this article.
Your SOW will provide a list of physical swatches needed for your project which might include samples of metals, fabrics, woods, and other materials. These will need to be sent in a minimally-specified size (patterns with repeats will need a full repeat of the pattern, for example) to the provided address(es) for 3D scanning. If your products use exotic materials such as alligator skin, please be aware that there are restrictions on such materials in some locales and additional resources may need to be provided to accommodate the scanning of these materials.
Our Configuration Workbook provides a template for laying out your configuration-specific rules. Learn more about it in the next section.
If your project requires us to integrate with an eCommerce provider like Magento, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, SFDC Commerce Cloud, etc., we will require temporary access to your environment to set up the integration.
Whether we are directly implementing your UI/UX experience or you are owning that part of the project and we are consulting with your team on best practices, we will need an understanding of your preferred UI/UX experience. Requirements for this portion of the project may include color hex codes, specific font files, Figma wireframes, and icon libraries. Please review your SOW for more details.
