Overall process goes smoothly

There are countless reasons for the importance of having a software process model for developing a software. The whole software development life cycle is dependent on it. If there is a proper software model being implemented, the overall process goes much more smoothly. Without a legitimate software process model, there would a higher amount of mismanagement at the hands of employees. There would be more and more defects in the model which would be corrected again and again.

Instead, why not just follow an already experimented predefined software process model which will guarantee a much more quality product. Without it one might miss a lot of steps during developing which would then become really tiresome to change in a later stage of development. The team becomes more effective as each person’s role is being clearly described which increases accountability.

Quality Assurance

A quality software which contains a quality code is the key to developing an effective software. Without a proper software process model, assuring the quality of the software becomes difficult, if not impossible. 

Shorter Delivery Time

Time is an important asset and related to many other key things like cost etc. which are being mentioned below. Basically, the goal of every company is to get more work done in less time. In this particular case, more quality software being developed in less time. To achieve this objective, one needs to be organized and work on tight deadlines. A good software process model will ensure that rather than just starting the project with no pre-planned road in mind. It is just like shooting an arrow in the dark.

Cost Effective

It is an established fact that time is directly propotional to money. If there’s no proper software process model being developed, more time would be taken to develop the software due to correcting more and more blunders again and again. This will have a huge impact on the company and their client’s pocket as fixing the blunder would result in more paid employees working extra hours on the same project every day. There would also be loss due to not meeting the deadline committed in the contract.


It is different when there are 3 to 4 friends working on a freelancing project and a multinational company developing big software. It might be easy for the friends to being able to manage without a software process model but it is impossible for the multinational to work without one.
