The House
This is a step that doesn't lend itself easily to the house analogy. Computer programs are rarely built in place, and in the case of most sponsored development, installation is a bit more involved than creating a SETUP disk. So, it appears that we've been building a mighty strange house. It's a custom pre-fab, which now has to be shipped to the final location! Phase 8 deals entirely with the logistics of getting it to that location and preparing it for the owners to move in! 

I know, it's contrived, but stranger things happen!

Phase 7. Testing & User Acceptance Phase 9. Post-Implementation Review
