37 Copyright (c) 2003 Howard E. Dow37 Benefits No operational defects reported On time delivery Value of process shown Some increase in expertise

38 Copyright (c) 2003 Howard E. Dow38 Pitfalls Must be “Sloppy” data collection Need for more training

39 Copyright (c) 2003 Howard E. Dow39 How to Find a “critical” project Suggest doing something different Keep it simple - be flexible Propose “Let’s put more eyes on the code.” “Let’s inspect the code.”
