5. So in performance terms, the evolutionary model was streets ahead of the waterfall model. Johansen and Gilb agree the focus on early delivery of high value provided by seeking and using feedback from stakeholders is a positive aspect of the model. They approve of the attention shown to quality requirements and saw this as balancing the over-riding concern with functionality shown in other models. Negative aspects of the model include • Defining requirements can be difficult. • Finding practical ways to measure real product quality can be an issue.

The V-model is considered to be rigid and inflexible, and has been found to be an expensive model compared with the waterfall model, needing more resources and extra money and time. inCreMental MoDel This is a method of systems development where the model is designed, implemented and tested incrementally (a little more is added each time) until the product is finished. It involves both development and maintenance. The product is defined as finished when it satisfies all of its requirements. This model combines the elements of the waterfall model with the iterative feature of prototyping that will be investigated later.

An ICT system has many separate operations, each one a stand-alone process. An engineered device will have independent parts. A business procedure will have separate rules, paragraphs, chapters and tasks. Testing these components separately is normally called unit testing and is often carried out by members of the development team, although each test should be repeated by the test team for verification against the specifications. When all the parts are assembled into a whole project, the testing team will test the complete design against the specifications.
