The weakest link in the SE chain
May 1994 (vol. 27 no. 5)
pp. 10-11

The author compares the performance of software project managers and software technical personnel for five basic activities. Automation does not guarantee success in performing project management functions, but the absence of any automation often correlates with missed or delayed schedules, poor or marginal quality, cost overruns, cancelled projects and the other classical trauma situations of the software industry. The author presents a table of results from a study which gives the percentage of projects applying automation to software management tasks.
