The analysis phase of the SDLC answers which questions _. B. who will the system be for, what the system will do, when will it be used, and where will it be used 4. Deciding how the hardware, software, and network infrastructure wil operate occurs during the _ phase of the SDLC. B. design 5. In which phase of the SDLC is the system specification developed? B. design 6. Interfaces (e.g., menus, reports, forms) are specified during the _ phase of the SDLC. B. design 7. The phase of the SDLC when the system is actual y built or purchased is the _. D. implementation 8. A development methodology that focuses on the processes of the system first is said to be _. D. object-oriented 9. The principal disadvantages(s) with the waterfal development methodology is (are) _. E. a long time elapses between completion of the system proposal and the delivery of the system and the design must be completely specified on paper before programming begins 10. _ development is a structured design methodology that proceeds in a sequence from one phase to the next. E. Waterfall 11. Determining who wil use the system, what the system wil do, and where and when it wil be used is performed during the analysis phase of the SDLC. A. True 12. RAD (Rapid Application Development) adjusts the SDLC phases to get some of the system developed and into the hands of the users quickly. A. True 13. Agile development approach is considered a special case of RAD approach to developing systems. B. False 14. Phased development is a design methodology that divides the overal system into a series of versions that are developed sequential y. A. True 15. Kim repeatedly performs the analysis, design, and implementation phases concurrently in a cycle until the system is completed. She is fol owing the waterfal methodology. B. False 16. Throwaway prototyping balances the benefits of wel -thought-out analysis and design phases with the advantages of "quick-and-dirty" programming to refine key issues before the system is built? A. True 17. The creation of a design prototype that is not a working information system, but represents a part of the system that needs additional refinement happens with the prototyping methodology....
