Navid Hashemi Taba, M. Nawaz Brohi . A Spring Model: A New Information Technology System Development Methodology to Combine Software Engineering Stages and Project Management Factors. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 3, 1 ( July 2012), 9-16. DOI=http:/ijais12-450426
This paper develops the spring model as a new information technology (IT) system development methodology to combine software engineering stages and project management factors. Spring model conducted time line control mechanism, progress measuring as well as the conventional IT system development tasks. The new integrated approach enables the developers to control time, budget, and other vital assets during engineering process. Spring methodology improves the existing IT system development methodologies using the results of a comprehensive literature review about the lack of project management tools in current IT system development methodologies.
