Software life cycle models describe phases of the software development and the order in which those phases are executed. Many software life cycle models have been described in the literature, different organizations adopt their own, but almost all have very similar patterns and face similar problems. Various researchers discussed traditional SDLC techniques and have shown that as the time proceeds, the phases of these approaches become messy in a development cycle. Phases in the development lifecycle include defining requirements, designing a system to meet those requirements, coding, and finally testing. Each phase of the development cycle is strictly sequenced and sometimes becomes chaotic. Traditional methodologies sometimes fall short in the new e-business environment. It is very difficult for such technologies to cope up with the pace of e-business software development projects. One of the major disadvantages of SDLC models is that a lot of resources are being wasted and inspite of having technical professionals in resource pool, people are not able to perform to the best of their abilities and produce results. To eradicate these problems a new model is being suggested in which customer’s satisfaction is the primary consideration. The proposed model has a flexible development procedure and is based on resource conservation. This model focuses on producing qualitative products by analyzing risks at various time spans and is estimated to produce results in best possible time frames.

Keywords: Advanced computing applications, Software engineering, Software lifecycle models, Risk analysis, Resource utilization, Customer satisfaction.
