The Design Phase
The design phase, as the name suggests, is where the new system will be designed. In this phase the processes and data required by the new system are defined. In most projects, there will be a number of different ways in which the problem can be solved - and consequently, in this phase, it is important that a number of different alternatives are investigated to ensure that the most efficient and effective solution is adopted.
In this phase, the steps that are followed include:
* preparing a detailed system design
* identifying and evaluating alternative system configurations
