Waterfall Delivery Model

Our Waterfall SDLC structure can be considered as the simplest and less flexible one. Performed in a strict top-down fashion, the progress flows in largely one direction. When it comes to software development, this model includes several phases: requirement analysis, system design, implementation, system testing, release, and maintenance. Let’s take a closer look at each of them:

Waterfall steps


  • For simple, structured projects, Waterfall is best used because of its linear and easy-to-follow design. Its visual representation makes it easy to understand the steps that must be completed to achieve project objectives.
  • Waterfall is an extremely rigid model that designates the steps needed to push further down the sequential stages of a project. It’s easily understood because it follows the same pattern for each project and requires no prior knowledge or training to get started. Each of the seven phases has specific components that need to be met and reviewed, making it easy to maintain control over each step.
  • High level of discipline: Because the start and end points of each step are determined at the onset of a project, it’s easy to share progress, report on missed deadlines, and eliminate risk associated with project management.
  • Comprehensive documentation: Waterfall requires that each phase is reviewed and documented before moving on to the next, ensuring a greater understanding of the tasks that were completed in each phase. There is a physical way to follow, report on, and refer back to the project because of the commitment to documentation associated with Waterfall.
