Many designers and project managers consider efficiency on one hand and quality and modifiability on the other hand to be inverse proportional. In other words improving the quality/modifiability has an efficiency penalty, and improving the efficiency results in lowering the quality. In most cases unfortunately – they are right. However, by properly structuring your module development you can in fact increase your efficiency while at the same time improving the quality and modifiability. It’s all a question of methodology, implementation coordination and approach.
This presentation will give a brief overview of some of the most important issues to consider – and show an example on how this could be applied to a real module design.
