  1. Skill-set of the software development team
  2. The process and/or methodology being followed for the software development (Following Standards like ISO, CMM etc)
  3. Efforts and time spend for the requirement stage of the development cycle.
  4. Efforts and time spend for the design stage of the development cycle.
  5. Efforts and time spend for the development stage of the development cycle.

I think you are prety much in order.
1 is definitly the most important.
2 depends on 1 (no matter how good or suitable your process/methodology is it wont do any good with out 1).
3-6 actually depends on client. How much total time he gives you to get the project done.

I think we have to make the # 1 choice as constant and implied that the Software development team is good....Otherwise no other choice will work.
Now according to my point of view, the # 2 choice is definitely the most important factor. All other choices address a separate SDLC stage and good isolated performance won't do any good.
As quality standards such as CMM, act as umbrella activities over the whole SDLC and follow best practices, overall quality of the project will improve as for every stage, people will have the guidance of how to perform best practices.
