Component Assembly Model is just like the Prototype model, in which first a prototype is created according to the requirements of the customer and sent to the user for evaluation to get the feedback for the modifications to be made and the same procedure is repeated until the software will cater the need of businesses and consumers is realized. Thus it is also an iterative development model.
Component Assembly model has been developed to answer the problems faced during the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Instead of searching for different codes and languages, the developers using this model opt for the available components and use them to make an efficient program. Component Assembly Model is an iterative development model that works like the Prototype model and keeps developing a prototype on the basis of the user feedback until the prototype resembles the specifications provided by the customer and the business.
Moreover, Component Assembly model resembles to the Rapid Application Development (RAD) model and uses the available resources and GUIs to create a software program. Today, a number of SDKs are available that makes it easier for the developers to design a program using less number of codes with the help of SDK. This method has ample of time to concentrate on the other components of the program apart from the coding language, user input and graphical interaction of both user and software program.
In addition to that, a Component Assembly Model uses a number of previously made components and does not need the use of SDK for creating a program but puts the powerful components together to develop an effective an efficient program. Thus, this is one of the most beneficial advantages of component assembly model as it saves lots of time during the software development program.
The developers only need to know the requirements of the customer, look for the useful components that are useful for answering the need of the customer and finally put them together to build a program.
