Five-Step Process of Programming 1. Define the problem. (Program Definition) 2. Design the solution/program. (Program Design) 3. Code the program. (Program Coding) 4. Test the program. (Program Testing) 5. Document the program. (Program Documentation)

Program Definition Specify the program objectives and identify the users of the program. Specify the input and output requirements. Specify processing requirements. Study feasibility of implementing the program. Document the analysis.

Program Design Designing the program logic through top-down approach and modularization, using hierarchy charts. Design details using pseudocodes and or flowchart . Test design in structural walk through. Structured walkthrough consists of reviewing process with other programmers and system analysts and scrutinized the programmer’s work.

Program Coding Determine the appropriate programming language to use. Code the program into the specific programming into the specific programming language decided on.

Program Testing Consist of desk checking, debugging, and running real data to make sure that the program works. Desk checking is just reading through or checking the program manually to ensure it’s free from ERRORS and LOGIC work . Debugging maybe SYNTAX errors and LOGIC errors. Syntax errors can be typographical error or incorrect format of the statement used. Logic errors are caused by incorrect use of control structures.

Program Documentation Write USER documentation. This is the manual that prepared to help the user use the program. Write the OPERATOR documentation. This manual is for the computer operator on what to do when the program flashes an error message .
