Flashcard Content Overview

Use this flashcard set to learn the models and phases utilized in the system development process. You will learn the how system software helps define, design, test, and implement different software for a company. You will also learn more about the purpose of a graphical user interface, and rapid application development. Finally, you will see how individuals in a company use systems development to complete a task. These cards will help define different system models, such as the waterfall model and software prototyping model. We will also help you gauge information through real life examples.

What is the name of this chart?

Critical Path Method
Examines all activities that, if delayed, the whole project is delayed.
System Analyst
They are a professional in designing and analyzing business systems. They understand how the current systems operate, and they develop new systems that meet specific objectives.
Prototype
A model that helps demonstrate the main features of the system without all of its detailed functionality.
System Development Tools
Flowcharting, pseudo-codes, computer aided software engineering (CASE), and software development kit (SDK).
Self-sourcing
In this type of sourcing, the development of systems is used by employees with specialized expertise, with limited or no help from information technology specialists.
Implementation Phase
This phase of a system development project helps selects the most appropriate programming language, and it writes the actual code needed to the make the design. It is the fourth phase.
Feasibility Study Phase
This phase of a system development project helps determine if a project can be started. An initial project plan and budget estimates are produced for future stages. It is the first phase.
Analysis Phase
In this phase of a system development project, it helps identify the requirements, and it provides a detailed analysis of the particular problem that is occurring. It is the second phase.
Design Phase
This phase of a system development project manages what projects are needed and how they work, how the software interface will be displayed, and how much data is used. This is the third phase.
Testing And Debugging Phase
This fifth phase of a system development project tests individual modules of the system, the system as a whole, if it functions correctly, and if it runs on intended platforms.
Installation Phase
This sixth phase of a system development project is when the system is implemented and becomes part of the workflow in the company, including the critical training process.
Maintenance Phase
This phase of a system development project includes minor update, or extreme changes depending on the effectiveness of the system. This is the seventh phase.
Insourcing
In system development, it uses resources within a company from the information technology department. It is a cheap solution, and it does not require hiring additional contractors.
Outsourcing
It involves contracting a business function to an outside party. The contract includes the type of service, cost, and time period.
