Its rate is almost constant. The third section is called “wear-out,” in which the failure rate increases as the product reaches the end of its useful life. In physical terms, parts of a mechanistic system start to fail with wear and tear. 1 The bathtub curve. Until the 1970s, the bathtub curve remained the basis of scheduled maintenance for physical machines and production plants, where parts of such systems were regularly replaced regardless of their wear and tear. All this changed in 1978 due to the work of Nowlan and Heap.

While it does not necessarily solve the problem of varying results, utilizing systems science or the systems approach can be considered a valuable addition to the toolset used by such teams. Designers and architects stand on firmer ground when they recognize the underlying basis for some of the solutions they recommend. While designers and developers consider causal and temporal relationships between interacting entities, the systems approach adds more variety and conditionality to the process.

Most organizations have mandatory guidelines about QA (quality assurance) — that no software should ship to a customer until all critical and serious bugs have been fixed (see Chapter 12 on quality). All things being equal, such a failure usually signifies that there is a problem outside the software boundary — the hardware, external software interacting with your software, or some viruses. Ⅲ The software is operable but is not delivering to its desired specifications. This may be due to a genuine oversight on the part of the development team, or a misunderstanding in the user requirements.
