systems development cycle
Systems Development Cycle
  • Software development is a complex process.
  • A system (software) may have a number of errors if not developed with proper planning
  • To minimize errors and improve quality, an organised approach is followed that is called System Development Cycle.
  • System Development cycle is consists of phases, and in the each phase a particular task is performed
  • There are many SDC models with slight differences
the five phases of the sdc
The five phases of the SDC:
  • Planning
  • Analysis
  • Design
  • Implementation
  • Operation, support and security
what starts the sdc
What starts the SDC?
  • SDC is used for new information systems and for modifying existing systems
  • Different reasons
    • Organisation development and growth
    • Correct errors
    • New hardware/software e.g. incorporate wireless
    • Security threats
    • Remain competitive
