Though fewer engineers are falling behind schedule on projects, you shouldn't get too excited yet. A third of respondents in a survey we conducted still reported being behind schedule, making it clear that there are still some significant problems left to solve. The most cited reason was lack of manpower. This challenge, while certainly not new, has been exacerbated over recent years due to the unrelenting growth in complexity of today's systems. During this QuickCast, VDC's Chris Rommel discusses this trend and how, in an attempt to inject new engineering efficiencies and synergies into the development cycle, a number of OEMs have been turning to software and system lifecycle management solutions.
