Phase six in the Software Development LifeCycle is the Development Phase. We have now written technical documentations for the Initiation, Concept Development, Planning, Requirements and Design phases. Next, we write documents to show how to design develop the database, system, applications and other software tools.
Microsoft Word Templates for Development Phase
This week we look at the Microsoft Word templates, guides and document for the Development phase. In this part of the Software Development LifeCycle, the IT Architects use the requirements gathered earlier in the process to design how the application works and the Design documents to develop how the application will work in a real environment.

In this phase, you need to write technical documentations, such as:
- Contingency Plans
