The design phase follows the analysis phase. In this phase, the details are the focal point. The actions which lead to the ultimate outcome are examined and a path of commands for the tasks is built to get to that final point. The implementation phase can begin once the blueprints for the smaller jobs are set. In the implementation phase, the tasks that were coordinated are put into play (Meakin, 1998). Once the implementation phase is complete, the testing phase begins. The testing phase is the point at which the design and implementation are put into question. If the tasks led up to the expected outcome, then the cycle moves on the final phase. If not, then the original design is looked over to fix any inconsistencies in the commands. It is then run through the implementation and testing phase to see if that corrected any issues. Finally, the maintenance phase closes out the life cycle of the information system. In this phase, the new completed projected is kept up to working standards. This stage may allow some tweaks in the future if the project requires them. To be able to replace the old shift punch system with a new computerized time entry system, all the phases of the information systems play a vital role. First, the store owner would go through the planning phase by simply deciding that it is time to replace the outdated system. This would immediately bring up the analysis phase. The owner would then consider whether this update on

    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.
