The Inception Phase

The inception phase establishes the business case for the system and define the system's scope. The business case includes success criteria, risk assessment, estimate of the resources needed, and a phase plan showing dates of major milestones. At the end of the inception phase, the life cycle objectives of the project are examined to decide whether or not to proceed with the development.
