computer programming languages or upgrades, and developers need to run the applications to ensure they function properly (Ransom,2018).Implementation includes coding, testing, and installation. During coding, programmers write the programs that make up the system. Sometimes the code is generated by the same system used to build the detailed model of the system. During testing, programmers and analysts test individual programs and the entire system in order to find and correct errors. During installation, the new system becomes part of the daily activities of the organization. Application software is installed, or loaded on existing or new hardware and users are introduced to the new system and trained. Testing and installation should be planned for as early as the project initiation and planning phase: both testing and installation require extensive analysis in order to develop exactly the right approach (Valacich & George, 2017).Key components of the Implementation phase:
CISP111 Final ProjectThe implementation phase is made up of six parts. 1.) Coding, 2.) Testing, 3.) Installation,4.) Documentation, 5.) Training, and 6.) Support. I will briefly describe each of the six components below.Coding - Coding consists of transforming the physical design made by the analysis team into computer code done by the programming team. This can be a very involved process.Testing - Once the coding has begun, testing can be done for each individual part. Then the individual parts can be combined together and tested as a larger program. After this everything may be tested as a system. Just remember that testing must be planned for earlier in the project. You need to know what you will be testing for specifically.Installation - This step is fairly self explanatory. During the installation process, the old system is replaced by the new system. Users may become frustrated initially because of the differences. It is the installers job to work with the users during this process.Documentation - Documentation is necessary throughout all phases of the project, but themost important documentation phase occurs during implementation because this is the end of the analysis teams’ involvement (Valacich & George, 2017, p. 456). The analysis team must provide all relevant information accumulated during the projects development and installation to the informations systems personnel and its users.Training - Typically, training is provided by larger corporations for more common applications, such as Microsoft Excel. Analysts usually don’t provide much training. When they do it’s mostly to corporate trainers for systems they’ve helped design so that corporate can train individuals themselves.
CISP111 Final ProjectSupport - The user support plan usually offers a help desk, online help, or bulletin boards and other support mechanisms (Valacich & George, 2017, p. 457). The development teamshould be aware of common complications a user will face.
