Write any example for Iterative and Incremental model. One example for each.

Iterative model

For example clients may not be aware of exactly what requirements they want before they see a

working prototype and can comment upon it – they may change their requirements constantly,

and program designers. This is an example of iterative model

Incremental model

Example -An example of this incremental approach is observed in the development of word

processing applications where the following services are provided on subsequent modules:

• Basic file management, editing and document production functions

• Advanced editing and document production functions

• Spell and grammar checking

Risk analysis and Prototyping, develop, verify next-level product Plan next phase and to determine the strength and weakness in organization

Identify the various phases of decision making process? (3)

Design: Once the debtors have been analyzed on the basis of pattern of collection, options can be generated to improve collection rates.

Choice: Now a selection has to be made which single strategy or combination of strategies should be implemented.
