When are methods complementary?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We address the issue of when software development methods are complementary, i.e., determining when a method is capable of a task that another method cannot perform. Our intent is to examine complementarity in order to help determine when to carry out method integration. We propose some factors for method complementarity, and suggest that contextdependent criteria, such as real-world domain and non-functional development requirements, may have a significant impact on method complementarity.
