Abstract

This chapter introduces a suggested system development life cycle “relay race methodology” (RRM). The RRM is based on the philosophy of relay race, where each runner in the race must hand off the baton within a certain zone, usually marked by triangles on the track race. This chapter is comprised of nine sections. First, it shows the relationship between software and wicked problems. Then the chapter explains the motivation for analysis and design for simulation system projects. Furthermore, the chapter gives an overview of the reasons behind simulation project failures. Next, the chapter shows the sources for simulation inaccuracies and the project management issues in simulation. Subsequently, the chapter explains the proposed RRM life cycle. Consequently, the chapter presents the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed RRM life cycle, while relating the RRM to the risk factors. Finally, the chapter compares RRM to different life cycles.
