To understand Importance of Software Development Life Cycle in providing greater quality to software
development or how software testing accelerates the development process.
Each student is expected to choose a relevant, current trend topic related to SDLC (For example: SDLC
Phases, Types of SDLC, SDLC in project management etc.) or Testing (For Example: Artificial intelligence
in testing, Agile and devops, API and services test automation, etc.) from a relevant web source

sources from which the information is summarized.
The report is expected to follow the format as given below.
The report should contain four sections.
o First Section (Preamble) – A brief introduction to the identified topic and the
importance of the specific topic in the Software Industry.
o Second Section (Project author View) – A complete discussion and analysis of the
information stated by the author of the topic in your Preliminary Source.
o Third Section (Potential generalized View) – You are expected to refer the other two
decided sources and bring out the argument either supporting or contrasting the
information from preliminary source.
o Fourth Section (Position Your Viewpoint) – Having gained an understanding with
