The Systems Development Life Cycle and Project Management

I am going to attempt to map the processes of the PMBOK Project Management Framework and the processes from the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) together, to see where the SDLC’s processes fit into the PMBOK framework’s processes, and at what point they integrate.

Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is an umbrella term for all methodologies for the design, implementation, and release of software. [wikipedia]

Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. [wikipedia]

The key processes of the Software Development Lifecycle are:

  • Initiation/planning
  • Requirements gathering and analysis
  • Design
  • Build or coding
  • Testing
  • Operations and maintenance

The key process groups of the PMBOK framework are:

  • Initiating
  • Planning
  • Executing
  • Monitoring¬†and Controlling
  • Closing

Watch out for my next post, with the solution. It may be able to help you better manage your software development projects!
