1. Planning Stage

By developing an effective outline for the upcoming development cycle, they’ll theoretically catch problems before they affect development.

2. Analysis Stage

The analysis stage includes gathering all the specific details required for a new system as well as determining the first ideas for prototypes:

  1. Define any prototype system requirements
  2. Evaluate alternatives to existing prototypes
  3. Perform research and analysis to determine the needs of end-users

3. Design Stage

The design stage is a necessary precursor to the main developer stage.

Developers will first outline the details for the overall application, alongside specific aspects, such as its:

  1. User interfaces
  2. System interfaces
  3. Network and network requirements
  4. Databases

4. Development Stage

Developers will follow any coding guidelines as defined by the organization and utilize different tools such as compilers, debuggers, and interpreters. Programming languages can include staples such as C++, PHP, and more. Developers will choose the right programming code to use based on the project specifications and requirements.

5. Testing Stage

Building software is not the end. Now it must be tested to make sure that there aren’t any bugs and that the end-user experience will not negatively be affected at any point.

6. Implementation and Integration Stage

After testing, the overall design for the software will come together. Different modules or designs will be integrated into the primary source code through developer effortsThe information system will be integrated into its environment and eventually installed. Passing this stage, the software is theoretically ready for market and may be provided to any end-users.
