Traditional Methods of Software Development. The Spiral Model.

20 Feb

The Spiral Model is another method of Traditional Software Development. This method only has 4 stages.  Planning, Risk Analysis,  Engineering and Evaluation. Software projects repeatedly pass through phases in spirals called iterations. This model is based on a number of prototypes that go through each phase.

1. Planning -This stage involves identify the objectives (what the  IS should do), Identify the resources and constraints associated with the project.

2. Risk Analysis – Evaluating the options relative to objectives and constraints and conduct a risk resolution are an essential part of this stage.

3. Engineering – This phase involves developing parts of the system for example the software requirements or design aspect.

4. Evaluation- This phase involves planning the next phase, this depends on what kind of prototype stage its on.
