Part 2 Tasks (Objectives from Week 5)
In the final week, you are given the assignment to craft an integration and deployment plan for your selected application or system that includes the required resources and work breakdown structure of implementation tasks (you may use Visio Software Application where needed).
The project deliverables are as follows:
Update the System Requirements, Design, and Implementation Specification title page with the new date.
Update the previously completed sections based on the instructor’s and peers’ review feedback.
Integration and Deployment Plan
Develop an overall work breakdown structure (WBS) for the 7 system development life cycle (SDLC) phases:
System Analysis or Requirements Definition
Integration and Testing
Acceptance, Installation, and Deployment
Operation Support and Maintenance
Add activities under the first 5 phases that you already performed in Weeks 1–4.
Add activities that are specific to the final 2 phases in SDLC for deployment and ongoing maintenance and support.
