Research on over 18 years of software projects reveals that developing large systems involves substantially more activities and a greater variety of specialized personnel than developing smaller systems. Perhaps the most significant observation is that good quality control is the best overall indicator of a successful project. Schedule delays and cost overruns most often occur when you discover during testing that the application has so many bugs that it doesn't work. Projects using QA teams, formal design and code inspections, and pretest defect tracking always had shorter testing cycles and therefore were more likely to be deliverable on schedule.
