Software Life Cycle processes play a key role in the successful development of software products. Software processes continue to evolve as the field of software development progresses toward being a true engineering discipline. This theses has two objectives: (1) To apply software engineering knowledge gained during the pursuit of this degree toward the design and development of a complete, Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) compliant process for the design phase of the software lifecycle. (2) To evaluate a Waterfall Lifecycle Model vs. an Iterative Lifecycle Model and compare SEI CM compliant processes to non-SEI CM compliant process using a "real world" software development project.
