  • This history column article provides a tour of the main software development life cycle models. System development lifecycle models have drawn heavily on software and so the two terms can be used interchangeably in terms of SDLC, especially since software development in this respect encompasses software systems development
  • Because the merits of selecting and using an SDLC vary according to the environment in which software is developed as well as its application, I discuss three broad categories for consideration when analyzing the relative merits of SDLC models
  • I consider the waterfall model before the other models because it has had a profound effect on software development, and has influenced many SDLC models prevalent today
  • Thereafter, I consider some of the mainstream models and finish with a discussion of what the future could hold for SDLC models
  • The process may takea few minutes but once it finishes a file will be downloaded on your browser soplease do not close the new tab
