Traditional Models (RUP, V-Model, CMMI, Waterfall) Definitions

  • C

    Capability Maturity Model (CMM)

    The Capability Maturity Model (CMM) is a methodology used to develop and refine an organization's software development process.

  • collaboration diagram

    A collaboration diagram, also called a communication diagram or interaction diagram, is an illustration of the relationships and interactions among software objects in the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The concept is more than a decade old although it has been refined as modeling paradigms have evolved... (Continued)

  • L

    living documentation

    Living documentation is a dynamic method of system documentation that provides information that is current, accurate and easy to understand.

  • R

    rapid application development (RAD)

    Rapid application development (RAD) is a model based on the concept that higher-quality products can be developed faster through more expedient processes, such as early prototyping, reusing software components and less formality in team communications.

  • Rational Unified Process (RUP)

    Rational Unified Process (RUP) is an object-oriented and Web-enabled program development methodology.

  • S

    software development life cycle (SDLC)

    Software development life cycle (SDLC) is a concept used in project management to describe the stages and tasks involved in each step of writing and deploying software. An SDLC model maps the software development process from its initial planning through maintenance and eventual retirement of the completed application.

  • spiral model (spiral lifecycle model)

    The spiral model, also known as the spiral lifecycle model, is a systems development method (SDM) used in information technology (IT). This model of development combines the features of the prototyping model and the systems development life cycle (SDLC).

  • SSADM (Structured Systems Analysis & Design Method)

    SSADM (Structured Systems Analysis & Design Method) is a widely-used computer application development method in the UK, where its use is often specified as a requirement for government computing projects.

  • V

    V-Model (Vee-Model)

    The V-Model, also called the Vee-Model, is a product-development process originally developed in Germany for government defense projects... (Continued)

  • W

    waterfall model

    The waterfall model is a linear, sequential approach to the software development life cycle (SDLC) that is popular in software engineering and product development and emphasizes a logical progression of steps.
