Phase ten of the Software Development LifeCycle is the Disposition Phase. We have now written technical documentations for the Initiation, Concept Development, Planning, Requirements, Design, Development, Testing, Deployment and Operations phases. Next, we will write documents to show how to dispose of the software once its lifecycle is completed. Use the Disposition Phase to eliminate a large part of a system or close down a system and end the life cycle process.

Tasks & Activities for Disposition Phase
This phase ensures that data, procedures, and documentation are packaged and archived correctly, which lets you reinstall the system back to an operational status, if necessary
Tasks and activities for this phase include:
- Archive Life Cycle Deliverables
- Archive Data
- Archive Software Components
- Close the System
- Dispose of Equipment
- Prepare Disposition Plan
- Prepare Post-Termination Review Report
The Disposition Phase is the end of the systems life cycle. Create a Disposition Plan to address archiving, transferring, and disposing of the system and data.
The disposition activities preserve information not only about the production system but also how it developed through its life cycle.
