Question no. 2
A software house develops an online test service for Garrison School. Students can take their class test online using this service. A bug has been reported by a student. Software house apply Waterfall Model for this small scale project. They want to do testing now.
What do you suggest they will use, which phase of the Waterfall Model? Give at least two reasons.
They will have to go back to requirement phase
As waterfall is a sequential model hence it is inadequate as developers cannot just go back and change something in a previous phase as the consumers requirement change but the developer has to go back to where the requirement needs to change and start that phase all over. Not until that phase is complete, they can’t move on to the next phase.
