Definitions for "Incremental Development"
(IEEE) A software development technique in which requirements definition, design, implementation, and testing occur in an overlapping, iterative [rather than sequential] manner, resulting in incremental completion of the overall software product. Contrast with rapid prototyping, spiral model, waterfall model.
A technique for producing all or part of a production system from an outline definition of the need. The technique involves iterations of a cycle of build/refine/review so that the correct solution gradually emerges. Also called "quick build" and "iterative development."
hardware/ software development process that produces a part ial implementation and then gradually adds preplanned functionality or performance in subsequent increment [D04115] CSM
