The S/W crisis is identified by S/W that is late, over budget, and fails to meet the customer’s system requirements. Over seventy percent of S/W development organizations develop their S/W through ad hoc and unpredictable methods. These organizations (immature ones) do not have an objective basis for determining S/W cost and schedule or judging S/W quality. Practitioners and their management during the course of the project generally improve S/W development processes. The company does not have any standard practices or if they do, they are not followed. Studies have shown that for every six new large-scale systems that are put into operation, two others are cancelled. The average S/W development project overshoots its schedule by half; large projects generally do worse. And some three-quarters of all large systems are 'operating failure that either do not functions as intended or are not used at all.
