In software engineering, one can find various life cycle models. Some examples include the waterfall model, agile processes, and iterative and incremental models. Research at least five (5) current and representative life cycle models. Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you:
1. Identify at least two (2) strengths for each model.
2. Identify at least two (2) weaknesses for each model.
3. Identify current trends in terms of life cycle modeling. 4. Use at least two (2) quality resources in this assignment. 5. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
There are a number of different models for software development life cycles. Life cycle models describe the interrelationships between software development phases. It specifies the relationships between project phases, including transaction criteria feedback, mechanisms, milestones, baselines, reviews, and deliverables. Lifecycle model addresses the following phases of a software project: requirement phase, design phase, implementation, integration, testing, operation and maintenance. Among the Life cycle models we can site waterfall model, V-shaped model, joint application development or JAD model, Rapid application development or RAD model, Incremental model, agile model. Here is an example of a Waterfall mode:
* Identify at least two (2) strengths for each model.
Compared with traditional methods, JAD allows users to participate effectively in the requirements modeling process. When users participate effectively in the systems development process, they are more likely to feel...
