Developing the System

Developing the System

Once the planning phase has been completed, the project team can begin work on developing the ICM system. This includes:

  1. Defining the system requirements
  2. Creating the system validation plan
  3. Designing system components
  4. Coding system software
  5. Fabricating and assembling hardware components
  6. Testing system components
  7. Integrating and verifying the system

While listed here as a linear sequence, these steps in fact often overlap, proceed in parallel, and interact in essential ways. They fall under:

  • the Development and Implementation stage of ICM
  • the middle phases of the systems engineering process
  • core tasks midway through the Connected Corridors project timeline
