System Development Life Cycle: Design

24 Feb

Hey guys, 🙂

So today I will be talking about the third stage in the system development lifecycle which is: Design.

This phase describes how the system will fulfil the user requirements, the logical and physical design is created in this phase. The system analyst uses the information gathered in phase two to create the logical design of the system. The interface connects the user with the system so this aspect of the design is very important. This stage includes designing databases and files that will store the data needed by the decision makers in the organisation. The analyst works alongside the users to design output that will meet their needs. It’s up to the analyst to choose an appropriate database management system, establish system security standards, data capture requirements, standards for printed report production and system navigation methods. The analyst works with users to develop effective documentation for software eg, procedure manuals. This will tell users how to use the system and how to resolve problems that may occur.

The desired outcomes of this stage are:

  • Functional Specification Document
  • Technical Specification Document
  • Implementation Schedule

Thanks guys 😀 Stay tune for more blogs
