Software Development


The areas of software development  this unit will cover are...

1 Investigate

Investigate the problem: describe the problem in learners own words, produce diagrams which show the relationship of the problem to the whole system, define the scope and boundaries of the system

2 Program design

Use the specification: describe the user requirement in the learners own words, define required input, output and stored data

Define the system: learners should demonstrate that they know what they are trying to achieve before they start creating the program; the easiest method to achieve this is to use a design plan

3 Create a program

Prepare for programming: using an appropriate programming language, code the program according to the program design

4 Evaluate the program

Evaluate the process: describe what went well, what did not go according to plan, how easy it was to use the methods, what could have been done better
