Development Lifecycle


These are the Phases of Project development lifecycle:

Planning:

Think about your Project goals and purpose. Who is your target audience? Your Project should reach to your core customers and in turn, it should bring a huge traffic to your Project.

Analysis:

Start analyzing the information that is related to your Project and what are all the functionality and information the project should contain.

Design and Development:

After analyzing the purpose and finalizing the contents of the Project. We need to organize the project. The following are the things to be taken into consideration while designing a project.

  • Requirements / Analysis
  • Planning
  • Architecture
  • Detail design
  • Implementation
  • Testing
  • Evolution
  • Delivery
  • Maintenance

Testing:

Once the Project testing is done and required changes are done, Project can be implemented. Implementation means uploading the Project to the server.

Maintenance:

As soon as the implementation is over, one should start working on maintaining a project. The Maintenance phase includes updating the information content by removing the outdated one and putting in the new one.


Software Development Lifecycle


The following are the 6 phases of software development lifecycle:

Requirement gathering and Analysis:

Business requirements are gathered in this phase, this is one of the most important phase for Managers, stake holders and users in order to determine requirements. Once it’s done the requirement are analyzed based on validity and possibility.

Design:

Systems and software are designed based on the requirement specifications. The outline of overall system architecture is prepared in this phase.

Coding:

Systems and software are designed based on the requirement specifications. The outline of overall system architecture is prepared in this phase.

Testing:

Once the code is fully developed it should be tested to check whether it meets the client requirements gathered during the requirement phase. During this phase the following things are to be taken into consideration

  • Unit testing
  • Integration testing
  • System testing
  • Acceptance testing

Deployment:

After successful testing the product is delivered / deployed to the customer for their use.

Maintenance:

Once the customer start using developed system, the actual problem starts where it has to be solved from time to time. The process of taking care of the developed product is known as maintenance.
