To develop of a new software, software development methodology is offering the most efficient development methods and management methods. But, it require a lot of time, cost and software engineering specialist. For this reason, we are awaking to the need of it, but it has its problem that is only applied to large-scale software. In this paper, we suggest optimized software development methodology that you can apply to a lot well-used small software development methodology in present, and we prove it through AHP(Analytic Hierarchy Process). This helps small and business not to introduce specialist can efficiently develop and manage software.
