Software Engineering, SDLC, Comparative Life cycle model


There are different life cycle models available for developing various types of software. Every Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) model has some advantages and some limitations. In that case software developers decide which SDLC model is suitable for their product. Further, we need development of software in a systematic and disciplined manner. This is advantage of using a life cycle model. A life cycle model forms a common understanding of the activities among the software engineers and helps to develop software in a proper manner, so that time can be reduced. The objective of this paper is to compare all traditional or existing SDLC model with our Proposed SDLC model for development of software in effective and efficient manner.
