Abstract

Today's system developers are faced with increasing pressure to improve the productivity and quality of the system development process. System development methodologies may provide these improvements in productivity and quality by specifying activities, tools, structure, and documentation standards. Although there are many methodologies in existence, there is little empirical evidence to guide practitioners in the selection and use of methodologies. The purpose of this paper is to compare and evaluate several popular methodologies. Based on an analysis of data from numerous sources, five methodologies are described. Research on methodology use and selection is reviewed. The paper concludes with recommendations for the successful selection of a system development methodology.
