Sue Conger's The New Software Engineering: "Project Life Cycles and the Sequential Project Life Cycle"

Read the "Project Life Cycles" and "Sequential Project Life Cycle" sections in Chapter 1 on pages 23–28. The sequential life cycle model, also known as a waterfall approach, has a work breakdown structure where the stages of work are executed in sequence, and the output of each stage becomes input to the next stage.
