How the SDLC Works

SDLC works by lowering the cost of software development while simultaneously improving quality and shortening production time. SDLC achieves these apparently divergent goals by following a plan that removes the typical pitfalls of software development projects. That plan starts by evaluating existing systems for deficiencies.

Next, it defines the requirements of the new system. It then creates the software through the stages of analysis, planning, design, development, testing, and deployment. By anticipating costly mistakes like failing to ask the end-user or client for feedback, SLDC can eliminate redundant rework and after-the-fact fixes.

It’s also important to know that there is a strong focus on the testing phase. As the SDLC is a repetitive methodology, you have to ensure code quality at every cycle. Many organizations tend to spend few efforts on testing while a stronger focus on testing can save them a lot of rework, time, and money. Be smart and write the right types of tests.

Next, let’s explore the different stages of the Software Development Life Cycle.

SDLC involves a predefined set of activities that completion is required for developing a new software product or upgrading the existing one. According to a project’s specifics, software companies choose a particular SDLC model and follow it during the entire process. Such a systematic approach ensures the high quality of the software, achieves cost-effectiveness, and optimizes the workflow.
It consists below phases:
Identifying Problems, Requirements Analysis, Defining and Documenting Requirements, Design, Building the Product, Testing, Deployment and Further Maintenance
