1

Sales ( Explore new customers )

How are customers (newly developed customers, existing customers) trying to develop current work or new business? For that, collect information on whether it is possible to cope with improvement of the system under operation, or to develop a new system.

2

Hearing the voice of the customer

Confirm the details of the tasks to be systematized, the requirements on the system, the trend of systematization of other companies in the same industry of the client, the operation start time, the development budget, the development organization, etc.

3

System planning, proposal ( rough  estimate )

We propose a system planning  (systematization method, estimated development cost, development period, team structure, etc) for solving the customer's problem, cost effectiveness etc. By repeating this proposal several times, while resolving customer's doubts and concerns, we will strengthen the contents of proposals and estimates as well as build trusting relationships with customers at the same time.

4

Estimate

Proposal (development cost, development time, quality goal, delivery date, etc.) and if they meet the customer's standards,  we will get an order from the customer and the contract is signed.

5

Requirement definition

Define tasks to be systematized (tasks that make computers work), functions and features that the system should have.

6

Design (basic design, package design, program design)

Based on the requirement definition, for example designing the entire system such as input/output (screen, form, database, etc.), processing method, testing method, security ensuring method, operation method. System functions are gradually divided into small functions (system ⇒ subsystem ⇒ program) and made into a detailed design for each package, subsystems, programs.

7

Program Development

Encode the contents of the program design document in languages that can be processed by the computer (Java, C, etc.) (describe the program).

8

Test (unit test, integration test, system test)

Confirm that programs, subsystems and the whole system run according to the design document.
Unit testing, integration testing of subsystem combining several programs, system testing.

9

Acceptance Test

Based on real data actually used by customers, verify whether the system operates as requested.

10

Delivery

As a result of the operation test, when it is judged that it can be shifted to the actual operation, deliver the deliverables (design document, program, operation manual, etc.) to the customer. (The customer starts operation of the delivered system.)

11

Maintenance

 Involves fixing defects, and corresponds to requests for user's addition (function addition) etc. When adding functions,  the flow is repeated to develop.
