The Spiral Approach

posted Oct 17, 2011, 1:52 PM by Eddie Woo
Today we're going to take a closer look at one of the methods from yesterday, the Spiral - and that will mark the end of Project Management!
  1. Distinguish between top-down and bottom-up approaches to system development.

  2. Explain how the spiral approach incorporates elements of both approaches.

  3. Consider the steps that make up the successive layers of the spiral:
    • Identify the different kinds of hardware prototypes and describe their purpose.
    • Outline the common milestones that occur in the design process of a software information system.
