Dev Methodologies

Review of Development Methodologies

Break and Fix No real planning up front. Flaws are re-actively dealt with after release with the creation of patches and updates
Waterfall Very rigid, sequential approach that requires each phase to complete before the next one can begin. Difficult to integrate changes. inflexible model.
V-model Emphasizes verification and validation at each phase and testing to take pace throughout the project, not just the end.
Prototyping Creating a sample or model of the code for proof of concept purposes.
Sashimi A way of organizing a waterfall model with feedback. All phases of development are done in parallel.
Clean Room An Approach that attempts to prevent errors or mistakes by following structured and formal methods of development testing. This approach is used for high-quality and mission critical applications that will be put through a strict certification process.
incremental Multiple development cycles are carried out on a piece of software throughout the development stages. Each phase provides a usable version of software.
Spiral Iterative approach that emphasizes risk analysis per iteration. Allows for customer feedback to be integrated through a flexible evolutionary approach.
Rapid Application Development Combines prototyping and iterative development procedures with the goal of accelerating the software development process.
Agile Iterative and incremental development process that encourage team-based collaboration. Flexible and adaptability are used instead of a strict process structure.
SCRUM Subset of Agile. Uses sprints to finish components of a project. Each sprint starts with a meeting and end with a review.
XP Subset of Agile. Extreme Programming, focuses on delivering high-quality software quickly and continuously.
