June 6, 2008

Rapid Applications Development (RAD) – takes user-centred view and
minimizes risk caused by requirements changing during the course of
the project

    Two key features:

  1. Five phases: project set up – JAD workshops – iterative design
    and build – engineer and final test prototype, implementation
    review
  2. Industry standard based on RAD is called DSDM (Dynamic Systems
    Development Method), standardized and more complex, basically
    consists of 5 phases: feasibility study, business study,
    functional model iteration, design and build iteration,
    implementation
