“A lot of methods and techniques have been released during the short history of software engineering that are meant to support software engineering activities. However, often the effectiveness of those techniques and methods is not clear. Techniques are applied without knowing if they will support the current activity. For most techniques it remains unclear when to use it and what consequences its usage has on e.g. the given budget, product quality or project schedule. It is this lack of knowledge that qualifies software engineering often as an art or craft rather than an engineering discipline.”
