Develop User Manual

27 August, 2015 - 13:02

Because the designer knows how the system and each program will operate, how each input should be prepared, and how each output is used, preparation of the user manual can begin in the design phase. At this point in the SDLC, the manual is used to begin briefing and training users. The development of the user manual proceeds concurrently and interactively with many other design activities. For example, user procedures usually depend on computer system procedures, but some system functions may depend on user procedures. Development team members must also know about user procedures so that they can design tests of those procedures.
