A project is a niche in creation. How well it is shaped depends on the kind of approach involved
in the making of a project. Researchers all over the world have defined a specific design
strategy which one has to follow to deliver exquisite successful implementation of the
required project at hand. This specific design strategy is named as the project life cycle and
consists of phases which may vary in number from depending on the type of project
and the industry involved for the same .The importance of the project life cycle
model lies in the fact that a well defined strategy is always required for tackling any
particular problem. So is the case with the project as such. There is always a complexity and
uncertainty involved that cannot be absolutely controlled despite the good lifecycle model.
However, following a step by step procedure is far better than tryin g to randomly build
up a project or maintain one as such.

projects can be mapped to the following life cycle structure: Starting the project. Organizing
