Now the stages …

#1 Requirements gathering 

During the requirement gathering phase, the goals and requirements identified in the planning phase are refined to determine the technical and functional requirements for the software or applications.


The requirements document and the Requirements Traceability Matrix are the primary deliverables of this phase. 


#2 Design

At the Design phase, design elements are created for each requirement identified. Design elements are a detailed descriptions of the desired features in the application.


This phase may later be divided into High-Level Design and Low-Level Design. These divisions are also considered to be distinct phases.


#3 Build and Unit Test

During the build and unit test phase, one or more application components are produced for each design element. Appropriate test cases are also created to test functionality related components. A help system that enables users to work or interact with the application is also developed during this phase.


#4 Integration Test

Drying the integration test phase, the application is migrated from the development environment to the tests environment, where the test cases are run on the application components.


The completeness and correctness of the application and the help documentation is verified during this phase.


#5 Deployment

During the deployment phase, the application along with its help documentation and production data is loaded on the production server.


Test cases are again to run on the application. Successful execution of the test cases will lead to the acceptance of the application by the customer.
