Abstract: There exist a large number of Models to develop software. Each model has its own characteristics, limitations and working environment. According to the requirements, software industry people use different models to develop different software. Waterfall model is generally used for development of software that is small with clear and stable requirements. While prototype model is used for the development of that software whose requirements are unclear and unstable, Incremental model is similar to the waterfall model but the software is developed in increments. Due to different architecture of SDLC models, each of them leads to different LOC provided that the same software is being developed. Simply we can put this discussion as different SDLC if used for developing same software then the amount of LOC that would be coded will be different. In this study we compare software build by different SDLC models in terms of cost schedule and effort estimated by using COCOMO.
