Software Testing is one of the parts of the software development life cycle. In our current market, there are so many individual models used in the software development process and there is each approach has its own advantages and disadvantages. so, you should select a specific model based on the project requirements and complications of the project. Let’s see different types of software testing models with their benefits and drawbacks.
Different types of software testing models are as below:
Read the brief about software testing models.
In “The Waterfall” Model process, the whole process of software development is distributed into separate steps. In this model, generally, the result of one phase works as the input for the next phase in sequence.
In the waterfall model basically 4 different phases– requirement gathering and analysis phase, software design, programmed implementation and testing, and maintenance. All 4 phases are coming one by one in the given above order.
The first phase of this model is requirement gathering and analysis, all possible system requirements for developing a particular software are observed and determined. This in turn depends on the software requirement specifications which include detailed information about the wishes of the end user. Based on this a Requirement Specification is.
The document is created which works as an input for the next phase, i.e., the software design phase. here one important thing is that once you move into the next phase it won’t be possible to update the requirements. So, you must be very clear and careful about the end-user requirements.

The V Model is considered best for the waterfall model. In this model, the development and testing activities are carried out side by side in the downhill and uphill shapes. Here development and testing phases work parallelly. Also, testing begins at the unit level and reaches toward the integration of the entire system.
In the Agile model, requirements, and solutions are developed by the collaboration between various cross-functional teams. The agile model is also known as an iterative and incremental model. The agile software testing model focuses on process flexibility and customer satisfaction by rapid delivery of working software products and by breaking the product into little incremental builds.
This software testing model is almost similar to the Agile model but with more attention to risk analysis. The different phases of the spiral model are – planning, risk analysis, engineering, and evaluation. In this case, you need to collect the requirements and perform the risk assessment at the base level and every upper spiral builds on it.
The Iterative model does not need a whole list of requirements before starting the project. The development process initiates with the requirements of the functional part, which can be extended later. The process is repeated and allows new versions of the product for every cycle. Every iteration includes the development of a divided component of the system which is added to the functional developed earlier.
The various software testing models used throughout the software development life cycle are listed below. I hope you’ve gained a better understanding of how each of these software testing models is applied to testing.
