    Software development lifecycle question


    Hi,

    I have been reading through the 'Object Oriented Classical Software Engineering' book and doing the chapter questions and I have struggling with a particular question. The question is:

    Suppose you have to build a product to determine the inverse of 653.228 to five decimal places. Once the product has been implemented and tested, it will be thrown away. Which life-cycle model would you use? Give reasons for your answer.

    Initially, I thought it was the iterative and incremental life cycle, however, after further reading, I am thinking it's the rapid prototyping model.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Max

    Well which processes exclude steps like "maintenance"?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper

    We use waterfall model for initial level. Waterfall model steps are Requirements -> Design -> Implementation -> Verification -> Maintenance.

    Waterfall model is process model in Software Engineering to initialize success of the project.It divide the whole software development process in separate phases like Requirement Specifications phase, Software Design, Implementation and Testing & Maintenance.
