- Question 3
Would you choose a waterfall based methodology of a prototyping methodology to develop an information system for High Peak Bicycles? Justify your answer.
- Answer 3
An iterative / prototyping approach would be suitable for the development of the High Peak Bicycle system as most of the functionality is, or should be, readily understood from the interfaces. It sounds like the users are not very familiar with the use of IS and seeing the system that is planned for them at an early stage should help. The system could be developed using a visual programming language or a database package and either of these approaches should lend itself to prototyping.
