Who uses the Waterfall model?
The Waterfall process is adopted by project managers who are faced with development projects that:
- Don’t have ambiguous requirements.
- Offer a clear picture of how things will proceed from the outset. Have clients who seem unlikely to change the scope of the project once it is underway.
- If a project manager prefers clearly defined processes, where cost, design, and time requirements are known upfront, then the Waterfall method is the way to go, as long as the project itself is conducive to those constraints.
