Abstract

The software development life cycle (SDLC) is used to design, develop and produce high quality, reliable, cost effective and within time software products in the software industry. This is also called software development process model. There are different SDLC process models are available. In this paper I have tried to describe different SDLC models according to their best use. There are many papers which have written in this regard. I will also use their knowledge or findings in this paper. The main purpose of this paper is to explain some of important SDLC models like Waterfall Model, Iterative Model, Spiral Model, V-Model, Big Bang Model, Agile Model, Rapid Application Development Model and Software Prototype. The main purpose of this paper is to explain advantages and disadvantages of these SDLC models. I will also describe which SDLC model is best fit for which type of software applications.

Keywords: Waterfall Model, Agile Model, RAD, Software Prototype.
