TRADE-OFF’S IN WEB APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT - How to Assess a Trade-off Opportunity

Sven Ziemer, Tor Stalhane

Abstract

This paper discusses a trade-off strategy for small projects and presents a preliminary guidelines for assessing the appropriateness of a trade-off. The motivation of this work is to make the development team aware of the performed trade-offs and to see both the associated opportunities and risks, to assess the appropriateness of a trade-off and to gather information for the future development of the system. The development environment of a web application is changing over time and it is important to know what the success criteria are at any time.
