You need what's called an SDLC (System Development Life Cycle) template.  Here is a roadmap ( a chronological step-by-step process) of an SDLC.

1. Team - A few end users and Information Systems Developers form a development team.
2. Schematic - The initial prototype schematic design is developed.
3. Presentation - The schematic is converted into a simple User Interface (ie GUI).
4. Feedback - After the team gets feedback from users, the protoype is reiterated.
5. Reiteration - Further changes/reiterations and presentations are made.
6. Consultation - The protoype is converted into a finished application.
7. Acceptance - Users review and sign off on their acceptance of the new software system.
8. Installation - The new software system (program) is installed on network servers and workstations.
9. Training - Group training.

Keep in mind it is important to use the roadmap in order.  You may have the need to repeat steps but try to avoid it by being very thorough in each step. Use the right tools for the project. I like Microsoft Project (for project management), Microsoft Visio (for the schematics), Microsoft Infopath (for the feedback forms) - but whatever works for you.
