Unleashing the Potential Impact of Nonessential Self-contained Software Units and Flexible Precedence Relations upon the Value of Software

This paper evaluates the impact of Nonessential Minimum Marketable Features modules (NMMF) and Nonessential Architectural Elements (NAEs) on software projects; shows that the value-creation path of these self-contained software units may be quite different from that of essential software units; and discusses the impact of early NMMF and NAE identification on the value of software projects to business and the deployment of business strategy. Moreover, the paper demonstrates that the existence of flexible precedence relations among MMFs and AEs may also be exploited to further increase the value of software development initiatives.
