SDLC Product

An SDLC product (software product) is the major control object in the process of software development. The software development may result in a completed product or modification of an existing product.

The product consists of modules – software elements that deliver measurable value to the consumer. The product modules may be decomposed into child modules.

You can also create releases for new product versions.
