Call for special software lifecycle models.

Hello,

I'm trying to collect number of different software lifecycle models that were really applied on some projects. No more theoretical models! ;-)

I'm trying to do some research with it. I'm very interested in some unusuall and specific models. Can anyone share such models with me?

Thak you.
Vladimir.

I'll point out Chapter 7 of "Rapid Development" as a starting point, if you haven't read it already.

There are literally thousands of different SDLC models for you to collect. Some are OO specific others are not.

The most popular SDLC by far is: Code and Fix

Commericial Methodologies (you have to pay for them)
* RUP
* Most large consulting firms have rolled their own

You can buy a book or a website membership to obtain
* DSDM
* Microsoft Soultions Framework

Free SDLCs
* Agile (Extreme Programming, Scrum, Crystal, FDD, etc.)
* OPEN
* CxOne Methodology from construx.com
* Book authors - many have created their own and documented them in books they have written.


"No more theoretical models! ;-)""

What does that mean?

The biggest problem with most methodologies is that they assume your project team has worked together for years. In the U.S. there aren't that many places that can make that claim anymore.

Try to see Ralph Hodgson X model.

I have Object Development methods Edited by Andy Carmicheal just for a record of the methodology madness.
