Database Lifecycle

Life Cycle Stages

  1. Planning

  2. Requirement gathering

  3. Conceptual design

  4. Logical design

  5. Phycial design

  6. Construction

  7. Implementation and rollout

  8. Ongoing support

  9. Planning When an organization determines wherter they actually have need for database, what its goals should be, and the feasibility of succesfully acomplishing those goals.

  10. Requirement gathering Determine all the tasks that the database is expected to perform

  11. Conceptual design Translate the requirements into the structure required for a relational database. creating tables and makeing relations with tables.

  12. Logical design Determine the constraints and rules that will need to applied to conceptual design.

  13. Phycial design Make specific additions to the development plan by incorporating the rules and capabilities of the chosen relational database management system.

  14. Construction Phase Build out the database components inside of the relational database management system.

  15. Implementation and rollout Deploy the database to the field and provide training on how the system operates.

  16. Ongoing support Identify and correct bugs in the system and provide additional features as requested.

The design pross is not linear.
