Often considered the classic approach to the systems development life cycle, the waterfall model describes a development method that is linear and sequential.
It includes 7 phases:
- Requirements specification
This method of development is very much beneficial since the time of investment from the client is largest in the early phase of the project, and exponentially reduced at the time of designing and development phase just to know the points and approvals.
At times, this method seems to be very risky as the client can only review and give feedback at the end of the project. However, we surmount this issue in the Waterfall Development Methodology by dynamic wire framing.
The more traditional Waterfall model revealed itself to be the ominant methodology with implementation across 36 percent of projects.
