There are various SDLC models widely accepted and employed for developing software. SDLC models give a theoretical guide line regarding development of the software. Employing proper SDLC allows the managers to regulate whole development strategy of the software. Each SDLC has its advantages and disadvantages making it suitable for use under specific condition and constraints for specified type of software only. The authors need to understand which SDLC would generate most successful result when employed for software development. For this they need some method to compare SDLC models. Various methods have been suggested which allows comparing SDLC models. Comparing SLDC models is a complex task as there is no mathematical theorem or physical device available. The essence of this paper is to analyze some methodologies that could result in successful comparison of the SDLC models.
