I have a problem where our current SDLC model is the V-model which is great for its verification/validation of all phases, but lacks the support for iterations. Spiral model on the other hand has iterations and fits, but does not focus on verification, validation and testing activities like the V-model.
Is it valid to just state were using modified spiral model which implements verification, validation and testing activities to all phases just like on V-model?
I havent found any SDLC model that would directly fit my needs and im unsure how much i can "invent" or combine by myself.
Ive thought about agile/scrum since theyre flexible and dont really lock in anything, but ive been instructed to avoid those terms at all costs.
