Systems Development

I need assistance in preparing a report discussing the systems development process for an in-house IS development staff and the different methodologies and techniques involved. The report uses topics like the systems development lifecycle, object-oriented programming, the unified modeling language (UML), structured systems analysis and design, participatory design, computer-assisted software engineering and related topics discussing potential problems as well.

Can someone assist me in summarizing this material using the above topics in a clear and concise manner?

Systems Development Lifecycle is related to methods of developing computer systems. This method has steps that are divided into project planning, feasibility study and initiation, requirements gathering and systems analysis, systems design, building, testing, installation, implementation, maintenance and business as usual. In Systems Development Lifecycle there are different baselines like updated product baseline, product baseline, allocated baseline and functional baseline. Systems Development Lifecycle in general is useful because it supports good documentation, there is ease of maintenance, there are excellent development and design standards and exercises excellent control. Systems Development Lifecycle has potential problems like limited user input, hard to estimate ...
