Introduction to V-Model

11 Feb

V-Model is the third Traditional Software Development Method (Waterfall is the first one and the Spiral is the second one)

“The V-model is an internationally recognized development standard for IT systems which uniformly and bindingly lays down what has to be done-Procedure, how the tasks are to be performe-Methods and what is to be used to carry this out-Tools.

3 Levels of V-Model:

  • Software Lifecycle Process Model.
  • Methods to be used.
  • Tool Requirements.

Submodels of V-Model:

The V-Model is structured into functional parts, called submodels. These four submodels are closely integrated and mutually influence one another by exchange of products/results. These submodels are as below:

  • Project management (PM): plans, controls and informs the SD, QA and CM submodels.
  • Software/System development (SD): develops the system or the software.
  • Quality Assurance (QA): specifies quality requirements, test cases and criteria, and examines the products and the compliance with the standards.
  • Configuration Management (CM): administrates the products generated.

Conventional V-Model represents the development process in the form of a V shape. The right side of the V represents the testing where the systems are validated against the specifications defined on the left side. The meeting point of the V represents the actual development”.
