Waterfall Project Life Cycle

The waterfall model prescribes a sequential execution of a set of

development and management processes,
with no return to an earlier activity once it is completed. Some variants of the
waterfall model allow revisiting the immediately preceding activity if
inconsistencies or new problems are encountered during the current activity.
Disadvantages of Waterfall Model

Very difficult to go back to any stage after it finished

No feedback loop

No testing/ quality assurance
