-- You are a project manager in a large software house of 
375 staff in total. The company has been running for 5 
years. The company has been CMM assessed at level 3. The 
company has many external clients for whom it develops a 
wide range of business applications.
-- Most of the company‘s applications are developed in 
Java. The waterfall lifecycle development model is normally 
used in developments.
-- The company has historically suffered from the type of 
problems that are common in the software industry. In 
particular systems have been delivered not always to user 
requirements and containing faults. The managing director 
of the company is very keen for improvements to be made in 
these areas.
-- You are in charge of a project team of 8 developers, 2 
requirements engineers and 3 testers. Your team is just 
about to start a new development.

System to Develop :( Exact Question )
-- Your team is about to start to develop a novel vehicle 
navigation system for physically impaired drivers. The 
navigation system not only identifies the correct route for 
the driver in the normal way, but also controls the 
steering wheel to navigate the car to the destination 
identified by the driver.
-- A basic statement of requirements has been received from 
the customer and budget and timescales have been formalised 
into a contract.

Requires TASK to write :
-- You must write a short report (maximum of 1 page) for 
the managing director of your company outlining how you 
propose to ensure that this project improves on previous 
projects in terms of delivering to user requirements and 
without faults. Your report must include how you propose to 
show improvement on these issues to your managing director.

Also please tell me how should I choose the best software 
model when given scenarios like these ...?
 Question Submitted By :: Project-Planning
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
The question has two parts, First about the standard
problem that the company has faced in its previous projects
and recommended solutions report. And the Second part about
the model that is a best fit for this kind of project,

First Part
From a PM's point of view the problem is, "Deliverables not
meeting the requirements / specifications or containing
faults". These problem happen mostly when, 1. the project
Scope is not clear, 2. when the requirement gathering
process is not clear or robust or is ambiguous, 3. when
there is no Change Management in place to track how the
requirements have changed over the life-cycle of the
project, 4. when product/project quality management is not
clear / not taken seriously.

Hence in your report mention clearly how you are planning
to tackle these four areas and explain how that will make
sure the deliverables are as per specification and will be
with minimal faults.

Second Part

For a project like this I will prefer a "protoyping" method
or an "agile" method as both of them follow the same method
to create a "complete Functional Model" first and then go
for the next step dpending on the findings from the
proptotype's behaviour and functionality. This is as per my
experience and can be different from what you might think
or plan in this scenario.
