Catching Construction Defects Early

by

One of the lessons I’ve learned during the development of Geedra is that software construction and building construction have a lot in common. The graphic below was lifted from a white paper on software development, but it could easily have appeared in a construction management textbook. In reading this I’m reminded of an old college professor of mine, who hammer into us the importance of planning the logic behind a software program before writing a single line of code.  “Make the mistakes on the blackboard” (I told you he was old) “because they’re a lot cheaper to fix there than they are once you turn them into zeros and ones.”
