SDLC or Software Development Life Cycle is a structure for software development process that describe task performed at each step in the process. SDLC is a structure that is used by the development team within the software organization. It is a structure that is used to make an detailed plan relating to how to develop, maintain and replace particular software. The life cycle is classified as a method that is used for improving the quality of software and the in general development process.
SDLC is made out of the following method: 1.Planning: this is the first process of SDLC structure. It is important when developing software that the designer of the software gathers as much information as they can from the client. The requirement gathering or requirement analysis is usually done by the mainly skilled and experienced software engineers in the organization. When the
requirement is gathered from the client is it’s then documented.
2.Implementation: it is the start of writing the code. This is where the software writer or software engineer begins writing the code according to the client's requirements. 3.Testing: this is where the programme is tested for any faults or bugs. 4.Documentation: this is where all the process is documented for future situations and for the improvement of the software in the development process. The documentation of the process could include writing the application programming interface (API). 5.Deployment and maintenance: this where the software is set out after it has been accepted for discharge. 6.Maintaining: this is the maintenance of the software for the future situation is completed. Software development and latest requirements can take longer than the time needed to produce the preliminary development of the software.
