Abstract: Software Development Life Cycle or System development Life Cycle or simply SDLC (system and software is interchanged frequently in-accordance to application scenario) is a step by step highly structured technique employed for development of any software. SDLC allows project leaders to configure and supervise the whole development process of any software. Divide and conquer technique is widely used in SDLC models. Tasks that are complex in nature are broken down into smaller manageable components. Developers employ SDLC models for analyzing, coding, testing and deployment of software system. Efficient and effective software is developed because of SDLC model, thus making the software capable of addressing expectations of the customers, clients and the end-users. Software developed by employing the suitable SDLC models is better performers in the market when compared with their competitors. SDLC Models helps in regulating the software-system development time and helps in effective cost scheduling. In this paper we have tried to develop a model which guarantees that the development and delivery (release) teams engaged in some project have strong co-ordination and collaboration leading to enhanced productivity, efficiency, effectiveness and longer market life. This can be achieved by incorporating concept of release with basic SDLC phases (steps) with the concept of release management.
