Kudler Fine Foods Frequent Shopper Program
Kudler Fine Foods is a gourmet food shop created by Kathy Kudler in order to make grocery shopping easier. The concept for the store was to stock a wide selection of foods so that people would be able to be able to get the ingredients for their meals in one location instead of having to travel all over town for them. Kathy’s idea came to fruition in 1998 when the Kudler Fine Foods store opened in the town of La Jalla. Since the opening of the store it has become an incredible success and there have even been two more stores opened in the towns of Del Mar and Encinitas. The Kudler Corporation has decided that it would be beneficial to partner with a rewards program to maintain its current clientele and even bring in new shoppers. For the implementation of a frequent shopper program the Kudler Corporation will have many different decisions to make along the course of the software development life cycle. The development of the program can be achieved in several different ways, but the priorities of the program will remain the same, to inspire customer loyalty, to better respond to customer’s buying needs, and to introduce new shoppers to Kudler Fine Foods.

Program Development
There are several different methods available for the development of the frequent shopper program that Kudler Fine Foods is requesting. The use of the waterfall method to develop the program will give the company time to go over each step and make sure that each part of the program is completed before moving on to the next step. This method has advantages and disadvantages that the developers need to be aware of.
