In the last decades, various Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) models have been developed to meet the different needs and challenges in the software industry. The purpose of this research is to analyze and compare some of the most common SDLC methods. After the selection and evaluation process is complete, a literature review is carried out by collecting articles, books, and other sources related to the SDLC method. Several main SDLC methods were selected for thorough analysis. Waterfall, Agile and Scrum are some of the methods. Important factors such as flexibility, speed of development, ability to adapt to changing requirements, and project risk are evaluated. The results of the analysis show that each SDLC method has strengths and weaknesses, and that they are appropriate for a variety of situations. While Agile and Scrum methods emphasize flexibility and teamwork, the Waterfall method provides greater structure and clarity to plans. This study aims to determine the best process method for software development. This literature review provides an in-depth understanding of the features, strengths, and weaknesses of various existing SDLC methods. With a better understanding of these methods, organizations can choose the SDLC method that best suits their project needs, thereby increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of software development. This research resulted in a process method that is widely used in software development, namely the Agile method.
