Standard Development Lifecycle

1960s – first significant model developed – Standard Development Life Cycle (SDLC), also known as waterfall method. Splits software development process into stages: Requirements Analysis Design Build Test Implementation Maintenance Model has high level of abstraction – seven stages. No models have lower abstraction guiding development process. Has Systems Thinking approach – Maintenance loops back into Requirements – software development […]

Development Models Introduction

Will be discussing models used in Systems Engineering field with emphasis on software development process and role of models in Information Systems design. Specifically look at role models play in development of software-based systems. These models used across other engineering disciplines, original mnemonic SDLC stood for Standard Development Life Cycle. Software produced to support systems – different descriptions include; data […]
