Impact of Software Requirement Volatility Pattern on Project Dynamics: Evidences From a Case Study

Requirements are found to change in various ways during the course of a project. This can affect the process in widely different manner and extent. Here, the authors present a case study where-in they investigate the impact of requirement volatility pattern on project performance. The project setting described in the case is emulated on a validated system dynamics model representing the waterfall model. The findings indicate deviations in project outcome from the estimated thereby corroborating to previous findings. The results reinforce the applicability of system dynamics approach to analyze project performance under requirement volatility, which is expected to speed up adoption of the same in organizations and in the process contribute to more project successes.
