An Improved XP Software Development Model
Source: Cornell University
The concept of agile process models has attained great popularity in SoftWare (SW) development community in last few years. Agile models promote fast development. Fast development has certain drawbacks, such as weak documentation and performance for medium and large development projects. Fast development also promotes use of agile process models in small-scale projects. This paper modifies and evaluates eXtreme Programming (XP) process model and proposes a novel process model based on these modifications. Agile process models stress on agility for software development. Agility signifies responding to changes quickly and efficiently. Possible changes required in software projects are in budget, schedule, resources, technology, requirements and team.
