This video introduces the issues caused by the waterfall approach of software development. It explains how software development approach driven by construction and manufacturing impacted software projects and includes references to the Chaos Report by the Standish Group and Scott Ambler and Larry Constantine's book on statistics that prove that the waterfall approach was problematic.
- The rise in popularity of Agile methodologies can be…attributed to what is commonly known as the software crisis…the challenge of creating efficient and useful computer…programs in a specific, defined timeline.…Compounding the crisis was the trend of managing software…teams with the same methods used for manufacturing…or construction projects.…Generally manufactured products are identical, think about…cars of the same make and model coming down an assembly…line one after another.…
Design engineers and managers typically produce well…defined checklists with well defined processes and tools…that workers are expected to follow.…Comprehensive system documentation is produced so defects…can be tracked and fixed easy.…And in construction, once you sign a contract to build…a house, the requirements are frozen, if you want…something changed or added there is an additional cost.…Change is generally frowned upon and as time passes…making changes becomes more and more costly.…
