Q1: Explain the diagram of system development life cycle using system analysis.

A: The System Development is the interactive process which consists of the following stages

Preliminary Investigation: One of the most tedious task is to recognize the real problem of the pre-installed system. The analysis has to spend hours and days for understandingthe fault in the system. This fault could have however overcome if the Preliminary Investigation before installingthe system was properly done. This is the first stage of the development of the system. In this stage the analyst makes a survey by gathering all the available information neededfor the system elements and allocation of the requirements to the software. Analysis of the requirement: The analyst understandsthe nature of the information and the functions of thesoftware which is required for the system. The analyst makes a brief survey of the requirements and tries to analyze the performance of the system which is to bedeveloped. He also makes sure that he gets enough information and resources for building the appropriate system. System Design: The analyst actually makes number ofdesigns of the system on paper or on the computer and sees to it that the rough image made of the system comprises of all the requirements or not. Once this is done, the analyst selects and finalizes a best suited design for the development of the system. System Coding: The analyst translates the code or the programs in such a way that they become in machine readable form. The coding step is very time consuming and involves number of rooms for errors. System Testing: Once the analyst is through with the coding stage he tests the systems and sees to it that it isworking as per the expectations or not. He corrects the flaws in the system if any. System Implementation: This is one of the most vital phase as in this phase the analyst actually gives the system to the customer and expects for a positive feedback. System Maintenance: The last stage of the SDLC is that the analyst needs to maintain the system and see to it that its working within the standards set. He needs to maintain the system by removing the defects of flaws occured.

Q2: What is reliability - validity issue? A:An info gathering system faces two major tests: reliability and validity. Reliability is the consistency of a measure. A measure is said to have a high reliability if it produces consistent results under consistent conditions. Validity is the extent to which a test measures what it claims to measure. It is vital for a test to be valid in order for the results to be accurately applied and interpreted.

Q3: Explain System Analysis. A: System analysis is the process of investigating a system, identifying problems, and using the information to recommend improvements to the system.
