Documentation During System Development: Maturity Levels for Decision-Making
During system development the decision which knowledge needs to be documented is quite difficult to answer. Too much documentation costs a lot of time and money. Too little documentation leads to a lack of information. The following paper describes how members of a project can decide which information need to be documented and for whom. This approach clusters the information within a development project and gives an overview about the involved disciplines and their need for information during system development.
