Evidently, the best analysis of the global recession--an economic slowdown, and its impact on business systems can be recognized through analysis of a business system life cycle
. Since a life cycle is observed through relations between money flows and time, and it comprises all relevant elements of organizational behavior, this gives us an opportunity to analyze thoroughly a recession impact on a business system.
Life-cycle oriented environmental management is based on the supposition that organizations affect the natural environment throughout their product's or service's entire physical system life cycle
. This includes its aftereffects, not just what occurs during production or service processes.

The term systems analysis is a better description of the activities performed during the first phases of the system life cycle
. Systems analysis should determine all three major questions relevant to the developed software system: why it should be developed (identifying the problems and the needs being addressed), what it should accomplish (specifying requirements), and how it should be constructed (outlining a conceptual design).
Accumulating budget pressures and ongoing DoD leadership attention has accelerated the need to reduce weapons system life cycle
costs and maximize efficiencies across the entire Department.
The reliability assessment results could be used to improve the reliability assessment processes, and are a source of information for improvement of the system throughout the system life cycle
However, measured over the weapon system life cycle
, logistics cost (i.e.

Note, too, the last sentence: "Supportability, a key component of performance, shall be considered throughout the system life cycle
." Not just a one-time thing.
