Report development Methodology and Documentation

repmethodMost software products use a specific methodology or combination of several methodologies. A methodology is a set of processes that are executed in a defined order. Report development should also follow a methodology.The traditional methodology of water fall approach is being used by software developers. It commonly consist of steps as follows;
1-Requirement Gathering
2-analysis,
3-Design,
4-Implementation,
5-Testing,
6-Deployment,
7-Maintenance,
In the waterfall method each step feeding into the next step. Strict linear models like this are no longer considered adequate for most application development process and many other models are used.To address these issues other models have been created that allow iterative development including RAD(Rapid Application development Development, JAD Join Application development etc.
Waterfall method can still be applied to much smaller scope of projects and documentation and subsequent steps can repeated in case requirements are changed.
