Abstract -
software development is a highly dynamic process so putting the right things to the right place at the right time is the main problem to be solved, it’s all about Lean. To develop a model which consist of lean principles and completely purely work for lean is the necessity of time hence to enhance efficiency in a proper way. This paper mainly focused to propose a model named Lean software Development (LSD-Model). Model is designed through all the software development phases, in addition to Lean principles, having properties of traceability and requirement change principle also. The model is iterative and incremental based. The model will be fast and efficient enough by implementing the lean principles and all the phases those are necessary to develop complete software.
