Chapter 1

Introduction to Good Development

Kim R. Fowler,    IEEE Fellow, Consultant

Chapter 1 describes the book’s purpose to identify important issues in developing and managing embedded systems. The material outlines the technical aspects, the teamwork, the effort, and the cost you encounter in developing an embedded system. It reveals how technical issues impact business and schedules, how personal interactions are just as important as technical breakthroughs, and the interplay of various disciplines to realize the final product. Consequently, this book is not solely for managers, it is written for every member of the project team.
