Consequently, planning usually overlaps with the requirements analysis, and a plan is ready before the later phases begin. This plan is an additional input to all the later phases. Linear ordering of activities has some important consequences. First, to clearly identify the end of a phase and the beginning of the next, some certification mechanism has to be employed at the end of each phase. This is usually done by some verification and validation means that will ensure that the output of a phase is consistent with its input (which is the output of the previous phase), and that the output of the phase is consistent with the overall requirements of the system.
However, to support this activity, information from various other processes will have to flow to the process management process. In other words, to support this activity, other processes will also have to take an active part. Process improvement is also an objective in a large project where feedback from the early parts of the project can be used to improve the execution of the rest of the project. This type of feedback is eminently suited when the iterative development process model is used—feedback from one iteration is used to improve the execution of later iterations.
SOFTWARE PROCESSES of many source files). These items keep evolving as the project proceeds, creating many versions on the way. To ensure that the software being produced uses the correct versions of these items requires suitable processes to control the evolution of these items. As development processes generally do not focus on evolution and changes, to handle them another process called software configuration control process, is often used. The objective of this component process is to primarily deal with managing change, so that the integrity of the products is not violated despite changes.
