The expense associated with making changes at each level becomes greater as the life cycle progresses.

This similarity warrants the same criticism that Boehm leveled at the waterfall; that is, that fully elaborated documentation is inadequate completion criteria for early requirements and design phases for many classes of systems.

Comparing Figure with Figureit becomes clear that this and many other life cycle models are rooted in the waterfall. Many of these attempts were oriented toward the goal of building systems which fulfill user’s needs and provide accurate and valid requirements to developers for software design and coding activities.

Standard: DoD-STD-2167A – Defense Systems Software Development

Looking at this figure enables the realization of precisly how similar the DoD-StdA life cycle is to the waterfall life cycle, and emphasizes the document-driven nature of both process models. Specifically, under Paragraph 5. Figure illustrates the deliverable products and their relationships to reviews, audits, and system baselines.


Assessment is made regarding the compatibility of the standard with innovative requirements techniques, and how and where these techniques may be inserted into the life cycle. Overview 217a the EIA Standard: As can be seen in FigureBoar’s model is not a complete life cycle and ignores some important issues such as specification and software design.

Iterative software development life cycle models have become more popular with the advent of techniques to aid in iteration such as rapid prototyping. This hierarchy outlines six major ways in which opportunities for software productivity gains exist.

Form hypothesis that an operational mission can be improved by a software development effort. Little concern was given to life cycle, style, or anything other than performance.

Formulate cost-effective strategy for resolving sources of risk e.

Impact of DoD-StdA on Iterative Design Methodologies

According to Boehmmany opportunities exist for improvements in software productivity. One of the most interesting departures from document-driven life cycles is that of Boehm’s spiral model of software development and sod. Please click here to complete a registration request form. Identify areas of uncertainty which represent risk. The fact that the waterfall and A are both document-driven standards, which Boehm has condemned as counter-productive to system developments which are highly interactive, can work both for and against iteration and rapid prototyping, depending on the requirements for the documents dkd be delivered.

Several iterative life cycles, most dood some form of prototyping have recently emerged. This results in imaginably low software productivity. Most access requests are approved. Further support can be found for the general view that improved process models and rapid prototyping techniques help to improve software productivity. This model is based on the premise that a life cycle is 216a7 living model with multiple disciplines and multiple, reconfigurable steps which are inherently iterative.


Iteration as described today is much more an active and interactive process. Notice that two major items, eliminating rework and building simpler products, have underlying techniques in common.

With the waterfall, the likely solution for such occurrences is a work-around. Another alternative model is proposed by Andriolewhich incorporates aspects of his earlier iterative prototyping life cycle into the A life cycle.



The realization that any life cycle must be tailored to dkd application under development is demonstrated by Weitzel and Kerschberg By using this site, you agree sod the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. As the complexity of computer systems grew, the complexity of software grew, and at some point there was a recognition that some structure, in the form of a software development life cycle, was necessary in order to avoid future disasters.

Some researchers and some developers have responded to this challenge, and published alternative models which appear not to violate the standard’s mandates. One particularly appropriate example of an associated discipline is that of human factors engineering.
