BIS 219 Week 6 – Checkpoint: Systems development life cycle (SDLC) There are many different phases that take place during a system development life cycle (SDL C). In an average SDLC there are eight phases. The phases consist of system investigation, system analysis, system design, programming, testing, implementation, operation, and maintenance. In each phase there are many tasks that are handled. In order to get the ideal outcome it takes a team of departments working together. The departments that make up the development team consist of programmers, system analysts, users, and technical specialists. System development specialists begin the process by investigating the problem that needs to be solved. They perform feasibility studies to determine the proper solution for the problem. Once a decision to move forward with the project is made, the system analysts begin their processes. The problem is defined in more detail at this point. The analysts gather more information about the current system in order to enhance it or replace it with the new system.

Unformatted text preview: Upon completion of this stage system developers can get to work designing the new system during the system design phase. When the designers finish their jobs the programmers can take over and begin programming the new system. Extensive testing is performed throughout the programming stage to ensure the new system performs to specific design. Once the testing is completed implementation occurs. This phase is launched in a pilot situation to a select group of users. The process makes sure the new system performs without any glitches prior to a full launch across a company. Finally the operation and maintenance phase takes place once the system is launched completely across the company. This final phase puts the system in operation until it eventually becomes obsolete. The maintenance portion is utilized by performing periodic audits to ensure the system still meets its designed requirements....
