There are numerous Software Development Life-Cycle Models (SDLC) that have been created over the years. While they all share the same goals and many of the same phases, they differ greatly in their approaches to achieving these goals. Often, the SDLC model you choose will depend on the situation in which you find yourself.
Consider the following scenario: You are part of a software team of three to four developers that is contracting with a larger software company. The company has asked your team to design a complex software component that will work within a larger software application the firm is creating.
One of the key challenges in this project is its volatility: Software requirements tend to change, developers may leave your team or the company’s group, and new programmers may be added during the development. In addition, the company will need to integrate your component within their own very complex system.
Based on the models covered in the readings and media (Waterfall, V-Model, Rapid Application Development, Extreme Programming, and Spiral), write a 3- to 5-page paper that:
· Explains which process model you would use to develop this project
· Justifies why you would use this approach
· Explains the key aspects of the model you chose that make it most applicable to this scenario
· Identifies the aspects of other models that make them less appropriate
