In this report I will be providinginformation about different types of project methodologies and the similaritiesand differences between each , furthermore I will be stating what project type it will be useful for, (bigor small) this will serve useful for individuals who are trainee applicationdevelopers. Incremental DevelopmentIncremental development shares manysimilarities with the waterfall model; this is in terms of being very simpleand easy to use. Inside the incremental, project requirementsare collated. After this the project requirements are divided into differentmodules within the project. After this the developed modules are combined withother modules that have also been developed.
Iterative Development Iterative development is a way of breakingdown a specific part of the application; after this is done any specific issuesthat have been identified can be solved at that particular phase, an example ofthis will be in the testing phase. Incremental Development and IterativeDevelopment Incremental software development and theiterative development is a method of software development that is modeled andbased around the gradual increase of features within the system. The incremental development model and the iterativedevelopment model is used when the requirements of the system is clearlydefined and outlined so models such as prototypes when used in the model willbe fairly accurate towards their target base . It should also be used whenthere is a need to get the product to the market early.
The main benefit of this is to maintaincontrol and stability with the software whilst continuously developing it. Incremental and Iterative Development and what is thedifference? Iterative Model of development is where we rehearse through the idea andkeep improving it this is done through a cynical process so that it is done to outlineas we rehearse through numerous versions. As you move from one build to anotheryou need to come to a conclusion based on the feedback received between these modelson what is the better build and what needs to be discarded. An Incremental model is where you build the solution in parts but at theend of each phase. This solution is not implemented however until the finalstage of the software development, this is due to the fact it follows the sameprinciple in terms of the waterfall model:Design, Implementation, Testing/Verification and Maintenance. Incremental Development Iterative andContinuous Integration Similarly to Continuous integrationIncremental development is also beneficial for a variety of projects. This isdue to the fact it shares the same advantage as continuous integration it isvery easy for the project manager to test and debug as the model is a small iteration,this means it can be easily identified amongst other phases that may be withinthe model. Incremental development is done in bitstherefore it is a slower process, to reach the final stages of developmentcompared to that of the continuous integration model.
This is evident as thecontinuous Integration model focuses on finishing tasks systematically andquickly compared to the incremental development model which is done in smallparts. Incremental Development and Rapid ApplicationDevelopment Similarly to the Rapid Applicationdevelopment model, risks and shortcomings can be identified earlier on in theproject. This is evident as both model, have a certain stage in which theproject team and manager will carefully assess and evaluate the test phasebefore moving onto the next phase.
One Difference between the IncrementalDevelopment and Rapid Application development is that the Rapid Applicationdevelopment model will be that it is planned for short delivery ofimplementation and delivery, whereas the Incremental Development model isdeveloped into a divided set of timelines, known as “Iterations”. Incremental and Spiral DevelopmentIncremental development model and theSpiral Development model are both similar in terms of the amount of risks anduncertainty that may occur during the creation of the Application. One difference between the Incrementaldevelopment model and the Spiral model is that an incremental model will needto have a clear and complete definition of the whole system and software beforeit can be broken and separated incrementally, this is not the case for spiral development. Incremental and AgileThe Incremental development and agilemodel are both similar in terms of identifying and defining a clear requirementfor the product. This is due to customer feedback on earlier builds of thesoftware that is created using this model. One difference between the Incrementalmodel and the Agile model is that the Incremental model is easier to interpretcompared to the agile model.
This is due to the fact that in the agile modelonly senior and experienced programmers are capable of making accuratedecisions inside the development process; this however is not the case for theincremental model as the quality of programmer does not need to be as highcompared to the agile model.Incremental model and V model V model and the Incremental are very similarin terms of having rigid and systematic procedures to advance through themodel. One differencebetween the v Model and the Incremental model is that the Incremental model ismore adept at analyzing risks; this will prevent any shortcomings that mayarise
