Developing an Automated Ticket-issuing System

Problem Statement: As a System Analyst, you are developing an automated ticket-issuing system that sells bus tickets. When the user presses the start button, a menu display of potential sources and destinations is activated, along with a message to the user to select a source and destination. Then, the potential date and time of travel for that route is displayed. Depending on seat availability, up to 4 tickets can be issued at a time. After selection, users are requested to input their credit card. The card's validity is checked, and the user is then requested to input a national identification number. When the credit transaction has been validated, the ticket is issued. Now write down the step by step SDLC activities (as points) you are going to follow in order to develop the system.
