The Weak Link in the Supply Chain

By: John D. McGregor

Abstract

Component-based software techniques have promoted a market of components that can be puchased and integrated to produce a product. Companies that produce software-intensive products using purchased software are experiencing the uncertainty and frustration that comes from including software development companies in their supply chain. In this issue of Strategic Software Engineering, Jon D. McGregor discuses how companies are addressing these issues and what more can be done.
