Start Assignment
Overview
With this assignment, you’ll have a break from the project work to learn about software process
models.
The software process model you’ve experienced aspects of in this course is Agile but there are many
others. You’ll learn about at least one other software process model for this assignment.
Why are we doing this assignment?
Different software production environments use different software process models (or blend them);
you’ll learn more about 2 of the classic 3 in this assignment.
So you’ll have a better idea of which aspects of which models to use, if you ever need to.
Instructions
1. Select two of these software process models: Agile, Waterfall, and Spiral
2. Learn about the two you selected using the resources below (or others you find).
3. Compare and contrast their advantages and disadvantages (2+ paragraphs).
4. Clearly describe a concrete example of when it would be appropriate to use each of the two
software process models you chose (1+ paragraphs).
5. Cite your sources.
