One of the main advantages of this model is its simplicity. It is conceptually straightforward and divides the large task of building a software system into a series of cleanly divided phases, each phase deahng with a separate logical concern. It is also easy to administer in a contractual setup—as each phase is completed and its work product produced, some amount of money is given by the customer to the developing organization. The waterfall model, although widely used, has some strong limitations.
By the time the first time box is nearing completion, there are n — 1 different time boxes in different stages of execution. And though the first output comes after time T, each subsequent delivery happens after T/n time interval, delivering software that has been developed in time T. As an example, consider a time box consisting of three stages: requirement specification, build, and deployment. The requirement stage is executed by its team of analysts and ends with a prioritized list of requirements to be built in in this iteration along with a high level design.
A project's process may utilize some process model. That is, the project's process has a general resemblance to the process model with the actual tasks being specific to the project. However, using a process model is not simply translating the tasks in the process model to tasks in the project. Typically, to achieve the project's objectives, a project will require a process that is somewhat different from the process model. That is, the project's process is generally a tailored version of a general process model.
