|Abstract:||The factors limiting the speed of software acquisition and enhancement fall into these principal categories, in rough order of importance, 1) Required functionality – what you need the software to do (and not do); 2) Architecture – the organizing structure of the software and its operating environment; 3) Technology maturity – to what extent the intended design uses novel solutions; 4) Resources – the people, skills, funds, data, and infrastructure needed to do the work; 5) Testing strategy – acquiring the information to fix defects early in development; 6) Contract structure – the alignment of contractor incentives with DoD satisfaction; 7) Change management – the processes for trading-off performance, schedule, cost, and sustainability This paper considers this taxonomy and examines how each category affects the pace of development.|
