After the team has completed requirement assembly, the next step is to design a rough sketch of the software process. Importantly, it is at this stage that the team analyses the possibilities of designing software that can fully address the user requirements. Additionally, they determine if the project is technological, practically, and financially feasibility for the Organization. This is enabled by the available algorithms, which allow software developers to determine the feasibility of the project.
The road-map is determined. Furthermore, the most excellent software model appropriate for the project is designed at this stage. System analysis is being conducted in order to; identify problems related to the system, gain insight on software product limitations, pinpoint and address project impacts on personnel and the organization. Additionally, at this stage, the developers of the software analyses the project scope and devise a project schedule. They also determine resources allocations necessary to fulfill the task.
Designing the Software
Following requirements gathering and system analysis, the next step is to design the required software product. By the way, information that was acquired from the stakeholders and users inputs becomes the inputs at this stage. They are brought together to prepare the output which is in the form of; physical design and logical design. What happens is that logical diagrams, data and mete-data dictionaries, pseudo codes in some cases a, and data â€“flow diagrams are created.
Programming stage/phase or Coding Stage
This is the initial stage in the implementation of the software plan. Actually, it entails writing program codes in the programming language that is suitable. On the other hand, the engineers ensure that they efficiently develop error- free executable programs.
