    Smile Waterfall Method Analysis


    Hi guys, i'm currently doing C programming, and quite new to it..We've been asked to apply Waterfall Method model on 2 given topics, but weren't given any examples of how they are done, or an applied waterfall method on some other topic to see an example, since it;s our first time.. has anyone done this before like an essay or something for a given topic, i want to see an example if possible to get a general idea. Thanks

    Us "Old School" code jockeys just call it Systems Analysis. But here is a link to an article on the methodology.

    A waterfall methodology is simply one in which each development stage is completed for the entire system before progressing to the next stage.

    The method has lost favour in recent years amongst software engineers where increasingly the preferred methods are more incremental and iterative. These often have similar stages to waterfall models, but rather than addressing the entire system and passing through each stage once, a small subset of the system functionality is developed through each stage, and the process is repeated for another subset until the entire system is developed. Such methods cope better with changes in requirements during development, and since in most projects such changes are inevitable waterfall approaches are most often inappropriate.
