RAD stands for Rapid Application Development. Now the second question is what is this model exactly? The Rapid Application Development Method is a method in which software development uses minimal planning in favor of fast prototyping. A prototype is a working model that is functionally equivalent to the final product. In this model, the modules are developed in parallels as prototypes. The prototypes are then integrated into the final product. The product delivery ends up being much faster compared to developers using other development models. In the RAD Model, there is no detailed preplanning. Since there is no detailed planning, it is easier for software developers to make changes within the developmental process ( SDLC - RAD Model, N.D.). In this type of model, teams are developed for the projects. These teams are often small and are comprised of people with special skills.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
