Each process evolved out of whatever process was in use at the time in response to a core element that was deemed critical, but missing.

Customer got desired quality and price. Less documentation, more comments. Code reuse doubled. 30% less code to write. 53. The Spiral Model demands knowledge of project objectives, constraints, and preferred architectures. The customer knows only the features required to do a subset of the job—the subset the customer thinks is most important. Special aspects of the problem, well known to problem domain experts, are frequently unstated.
