    have a framework where different stages can be traversed, with the framework acting not only as a guide, but as a control to ensure that all tasks are completed and  that the project remains viable. It is by looking at the concept, what it does and its limitations as well as potential that the approaches may be best understood.  The there are a number of different system design methodologies, even within the same areas there are differences. For example, the traditional software development lifecycle model can have between 4  and 12 different stages, with each date requiring completion before the next stage can be tackled. Regardless of the number stages, there is an emphasis on aspects such as the  documentation and checkpoints. This allows the development to take place, and also facilitates changes at a later date, by reference to the form of documentation. In many projects which do  not utilize a design methodology the review impossible need to make adaptations to previous stages, which emerge at a later date, can be problematic. However, where the system design methodology  is followed it is highly unlikely changes will be made at a later date, unless there are changes to the required specifications. The general processes sees the idea from  its initial conception, through processes such as the identification of needs which may also be the listing of the customer requirements, the determination of the technical design features that are  needed, the undertaking of the software design itself, implementing occurred, testing the software, any remedial action required, through to implementation and final release (Kanjilal, 2006). Different models may have different  names for the same stages, or maybe stages down in slightly different segments, but the general approach of moving from concept to final release is broadly aligned. For example, software
