The first step of the SDLC is to create a business case. This includes defining the problem, determining its importance and creating a solution that will address this issue.
The next step is to analyze the current state of the software project. This involves understanding all the factors that contribute to a successful development, including schedule and budget constraints, dependencies and resource allocations.
The third step is developing an architecture for the software system based on user requirements and business scenarios. This involves identifying modules, interfaces and components in order to break down larger tasks into smaller ones.
The fourth step is creating a detailed design document which defines how the architecture should be implemented in code by following best practices and conventions used by other developers in your organization or industry-specific standards like MISRA C:2012 or MISRA C++:2008. These documents also include information about data structures, algorithms and program design patterns that should be used in order to make sure that your code will work properly and efficiently without causing unnecessary overhead or bugs during execution time as well as resource usage during compilation time (i.e., compile time).
