A Spiral Software Engineering Model to Inspire Innovation and Creativity of University Students
Keywords:Spiral Model, Innovation, Creativity, Software Engineering
Youth, especially students in universities, have tremendous energy that could be utilized to support their universities’ visions and their societies. However, students face several problems -for reasons related to their personalities, monetary support, and mentoring. During incubation, an idea goes several steps to crystallize, develop, and then be evaluated to gain success. However, the innovation process is agile, unstable, and subject to the risk of failure. Therefore, this paper proposes a spiral software model, called iSpiral, starting from student ideas and ending with creative operational projects. The proposed model was compared with selected models over a set of innovative criteria. The proposed iSpiral model was found more general and actionable, especially over agility and control criteria. The proposed iSpiral model was applied to a series of interrelated student ideas. The proposed model switched unmanaged and risky initiatives into active-inspired projects.
