It is not possible to estimate the scale of the development.
It is possible to estimate efficiently the costs of integration, management, etc. related to the entire project from the viewpoint of the global nature of the software.
|It is easy to overlook individual technical problems.|
|d)||It is possible to begin its application relatively early in the project. It is easy to reach a consensus with users.||It is necessary to gather and evaluate actual data in order to set the appropriate base values.|
