Phases in a Project August 26, 2005

Posted by Coolguy in Software Development.

Project Start Up Phase: An idea for a project is agreed in principal by one or more Business Stream Technology Councils. Service Delivery will work with members of the affected Business Streams to outline a Business Case and requirements for a project. A Project Steering Group is assigned to run the project to conclusion.

Project Initiation Phase: The project will then be elaborated to the point where a reasonably confident view of the project: its specifications, timescales, budget and success criteria can be agreed.

Construction Phase: The project is then built in a number of demonstrable stages. The progress and quality of the project is formally reviewed by the Project Steering Group after each stage.

User Acceptance Phase : At the end of construction, user testing is performed to ensure that the result of the project fulfils the agreed specification. (See User Acceptance Phase.)

Deployment Phase: A deployment phase then tests the outcome in practice and gets it into live usage.

Project Closure Phase: Finally, the Project Steering Group and the Project Sponsor agrees that a project is complete and can be closed down.
