Abstract: Various SDLC models are available which are employed by different organizations depending upon their need and requirement of software being developed [1],[2]. Each company either follows a fixed SDLC or randomly chooses SDLC model. There were various SDLC models available but none of them were capable in addressing the issue of release management. We have developed a SDLC model – “SDLC VISHWAS” which enables the developer in handling the concept of release management along with the core SDLC phases employed for software development. We have developed software capable of generating schedules, effort, development time and staffing needed for any specified software which employs the concept of CoCoMo – 81[3],[4]. The software generates results both in text and in graphic charts which makes clear understanding for specified software being developed.
