So it might work well for very strictly defined problems, like "fly space shuttle", if you do it right.
As you can see from the program managers, it doesn't work [pdf]
. An excerpt:
Shuttle program schedules required that the software
be certified and ready to support the first orbital flight.
However, the detailed definition of all requirements
could not be completed in time to support a proven
software design, implementation, and verification development cycle (Figure 2) due to the ongoing vehicle
engineering analysis work.
these conflicting demands and still deliver a fully verified, error-free software system consistent with Shuttle
flight schedules, a development strategy was evolved
that preserved the effectiveness of the proven development cycle and satisfied the customer requirements.
