Meaning of RAPID APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(RAD) A loose term for any software life-cycle designed to give faster development and better results and to take maximum advantage of recent advances in development software.

RAD is associated with a wide range of approaches to software development: from hacking away in a gui builder with little in the way of analysis and design to complete methodologies expanding on an information engineering framework.

Some of the current RAD techniques are: case tools, iterative life-cycles, prototyping, workshops, swat teams, timebox development, and re-use of applications, templates and code.
