Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 181!

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 181 features my essay titled, Manufacturing, Engineering or Craft?  The essay begins . . .

A few weeks ago I sat next to a gentlemen on a flight to Albuquerque.  After a couple of glasses of wine we found we were in related fields.  As the conversation progressed he confided in me that he did not understand why software projects were never on time, on budget or exactly what he wanted since software development was engineering and his consultants had called development a factory. I paid for the next round of wine as I tried to dissuade my new friend that building, enhancing or maintaining software was not really like assembling a car.

Shameless Ad for my book! 

Mastering Software Project Management: Best Practices, Tools and Techniques co-authored by Murali Chematuri and myself and published by J. Ross Publishing. We have received unsolicited reviews like the following: "This book will prove that software projects should not be a tedious process, neither for you or your team."
