The author discusses five problems that can contribute to a software project's failure. The five pitfalls are: inadequate system engineering during the proposal and during front-end development; inadequate tracing, tracking, and management of system and software requirements; improper sizing of the target hardware; selection of design, production, and integration and test methodologies that are inappropriate to a large software development; and failure to provide a metrics program that would let managers track the progress of software production and test.<>
