Systems Development Life Cycle The term System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is used to indicate traditional development methods which are used by organizations on large-scale IT projects. There is a structural framework in SDLC comprised of processes that are executed in sequence during the development of information systems. Step one Systems Investigation involves a feasibility study for the product. During this step, the software analyst’s job is to work with strategy makers to establish an agreed upon definition of the project’s scope and define its goals and related objectives. Step two Systems Analysis requires specifications definition. The analyst makes refinements to previously define goals during this step. Functions of operations for the software applications will be broken out here. Step three Systems Design describes how the system will accomplish this task. The analyst reviews the end-users requirements and develops a specific plan of action to address these information needs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
