I am developing a system using Microsoft Access. A Stock Control Databade with an integrated interface for generating sales invoices and automatically updating stock levels in the database. I am a bit confused as to which Methodology should I use SSADM or OOAD ? Also taking this into consideration what (SDLC) lifecycle model would be best suited for this type of system? And could you hilight som reasons why should I choose one over the other ? All the help I get would be greatly Appreciated ! Thanks in advance!

Hello mummad,

I'm afraid this sounds like homework to me.

Yes ... and if you look at the poster's history, I'd say the case becomes even stronger

mummad,
The questions you raise are just not issues that Access developers in commercial development offices usually deal with. Many companies have procedure and documentation standards which apply to IT developments but these would not be re-evaluated for each project, so the developer would just fit in with what was already there. And there is a big difference between IT projects in commercial companies and those in public/government bodies.  The nature of accountability in these different types of organisations means that businesses heavily emphasise results over procedure whereas public/gov't bodies are completely the reverse (which probably accounts for the abysmal record of failed government IT projects in the UK, at least  - but this is getting too controversial).  
So there might be people here who have been involved in production of internal standards, but I doubt if there would be anyone who had ever considered these questions for a single (especially Access) project. (Famous last words, of course!)

Pete,

It's not just for Access that I am requesting this info. Acces will be used, yes, but generally... What would the approach be for such a system ? This is my question... I am looking into the RAD and the Evolutionary Prototyping models for sucha system but I am still unsure as to what should I use?
