5 common problems in software development process

Here’s a summary of what I believe are the most common problems in the software development process:

  • Miscommunication:  If developers don’t know what’s needed or customer’s have false expectations, problems are guaranteed.
  • Poor requirements:  If requirements are unclear, incomplete, too general, and not testable, there will be problems.
  • Unrealistic schedule:  If too much work is crammed in too little time, problems are inevitable.
  • Featuritis (Feature creep):  Requests to pile on new features after development is underway; extremely common.
  • Inadequate testing:  Applications may or may not work correctly until the customer complains or systems crash.
