A Classification Scheme for Software Development Methods

  • Abstract

    Software development methods are used to assist with the process of designing software for real-time systems. Many such methods have come into practice over the last decade, and new methods are emerging. These new methods are more powerful than the old ones, especially with regard to real-time aspects of the software. This report describes a classification scheme for software development methods, includes descriptions of the major characteristics of such methods, and contains some words of advice on choosing and applying such methods.
