Various phases of Software Development Life Cycle are:

sdlc-phase

1. Planning

We have a combined team of experienced ux designers in San Francisco as well as a team of fresh brains who are an enthusiastic bunch of explorers, designers, strategists, thinkers and developers. Experienced team members bring legacy & culture whereas freshers bring new perspectives & approach. They work in synergy to dedicatedly bring new life to a concept.

2. Defining

At this stage, project requirements are verified and all the outcomes from the planning stage are formally documented. A formal requirement documentation is done where each and every step of the plan (objectives, project goals, the functions and operations of the application) is defined very clearly.

3. Designing

Detailed screen layouts/wireframes, business rules, process diagrams, pseudocode, and other documentation are laid out. Generally there are two levels of designing followed: High Level Design (HLD) and Low Level Design (LLD).

High Level Design (HLD)

HLD is also known as macro level/system design. It showcases the brief functionality of each module and explains the overall description/architecture of the application. It is created by the solution architect. Here two teams are involved: design team, and client team.

Low Level Design (LLD)

LLD is also known as micro level/detailed design. It showcases detailed descriptions and detailed functional logic of the module. It is created by designers and developers.

4. Development / Implementation

At the time of software development/coding-all the pieces are put together in an environment that checks for errors, bugs, vulnerabilities, gaps, and interoperability.

5. Testing

Once the software development is complete, and it is deployed in the testing environment. The testing team starts testing the functionality of the entire system. This is done to verify that the entire application works according to the customer requirement.

6. Deployment

Once the testing is complete with all the bugs and errors fixed, it is time to finally go live with the software ready for clients to use it.

7. Maintenance

Once the client starts using the software there will be times when they would require support from the development company. At this stage, maintaining updates, performance evaluations, and making any changes to the initial software are key maintenance procedures.
