Project Management

Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.

Project Management processes fall in to 5 major groups:

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


Temporary: A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources.

Unique: A project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.


Following are few Artifacts of Project Management


SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle)

Software Development Life Cycle is a process utilized by the software industry to design, develop, test and deploy software product. SDLC has 6 major steps:

  • Planning and Requirement Analysis
  • Defining Requirements
  • Designing
  • Developing/Coding
  • Testing and
  • Deployment and Maintenance


 SDLC (System Development Life Cycle)

System Development Life Cycle is also referred to as the application development life cycle and used in System Engineering, information systems and software engineering. However, System Development Life Cycle is a  broader aspect than Software Development Life Cycle. Major SDLC steps include:

  • Planning
  • Analysis
  • Design
  • Implementation and
  • Maintenance

However, System Development Life Cycle can have many other steps and phases.

Difference Between SDLC and SDLC 

System Development Life Cycle is much broader which is a super set to the Software development Life Cycle and is a larger picture and includes many other activities and artifacts. Where as Software Development Life Cycle has limited boundary and comprised of 6 major steps. Software Development Life Cycle applies to Software Development Only; where as System Development Life Cycle applies to both Software and Hardware Configuration.
