Summary Comparisons Across the 11 Case Studies

This chapter wraps up the 11 case studies with tabulated comparisons. Each of the following sections in the chapter, 15.2 through 15.13, aligns with one area across the case studies. These areas are as follows:

Market People and disciplines Architecting and architecture Scheduling Documentation and processes Requirements and standards Analyses Design trade-offs Test and integration Manufacturing Support and service Liability

Each section is self-contained. This chapter does not have a summary or conclusion; each section acts as a summary for that particular concern across the case studies. Not all the comparisons are exact or strictly objective. As an example, some

products may have little integration while others have a medium amount of integration. This is a subjective evaluation that I have made based on a few products that have very extensive programs of integration.
