Software Development Paradigm & Process Model

It is important for the software developers to pinpoint the best strategy in developing the software. The software Paradigm contains the set of methods, procedures, and tools which are clearly articulated and explains the development life-cycle of the software. The following are the major paradigms involved in software development:

The Big Bang Model. It’s the simplest of all models due to its form. Though it requires simple planning, on the contrary, it needs a lot of programming and funds. The drawback of this model is that it’s not appropriate for large projects.

V- Model. This Model enables software testing in a reverse manner at every stage of its development. Verification and validation of the software are conducted in a parallel manner. As a result of this, the model is also referred to a Verification and Validation Model.

Iterative Model. The model leads to software development in iterations. The software is first of all developed in small scale and then more modules and features are designed, coded, tested and finally added to the previous software iteration.

Waterfall Model. It is the simplest model of the paradigm. Indeed, the model is best applicable when the software developer has ever designed and developed analogous software before.

Spiral Model. It is a combination of one of the SDLC model and the iterative model. The model takes risk considerations, which is not the case with other models.
