Week 9 Capstone Question Drawing upon your knowledge of software development, which process- requirements, design, coding, or testing – do you think has more impact on the overall success and quality of development? Explain and answer. In my opinion, the process-requirements that have more of an impact for the overall success and quality of development are the design phase. The design phase uses relatively ordinary language or special chart of the program-to-be to accomplish the task. (Venit, 2004, p. 26). By focusing on this phase, one can find errors, avoid redundancies or omit requirements such as inputs and outputs which are necessary to solve a given problem. Another benefit of the design phase is the ability to solve a problem by breaking it down into smaller pieces or subtasks. When we first begin this block, I wondered how in the world one would program or test without software. The Syllabus did not require us to

After writing the Pseudocode, I defined the global variables outside the subtasks. When needed, I put the private variables necessary for the routine in the subtasks. For, me this helped the lazy approach I would have done before which was time consuming. Although testing or coding is part of the development of a program, it is necessary to go through the design phase before going further. I think that the design phase is the outline of the program and is as important as analyzing the problem. In conclusion, by focusing on the design phase one can find errors, avoid redundancies or omit requirements that may later be found in the testing and coding phase. Reference Venit, S. (2004).
