Managing Complex Software Projects
Experiences With Real-Time Mission-Critical Systems
Managing any large development project is a challenge. When the system under development incorporates vast amounts of software, the management challenge is made much more difficult. When that software must perform at rates dictated by external events, when its successful operation involves human-machine collaboration to make decisions in the presence of uncertain data, and when system failure cannot be tolerated, then the difficulty in managing the development to a successful conclusion is beyond most managers’ ability.
