style='font-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Tahoma","sans-serif"'>Software development
has its roots in the 1960s and since then has grown into a remarkable industry.
The worldwide software industry in the past few years has generated
approximately $600 to $700 billion per year in revenues for software producers.
About one-third of the software revenues are standardized products and the
other two-thirds are services related to software development and
implementation, such as system customization and IT consulting.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

created for sale (software product development), outcome of the project is made
for internal use (in-house software development, not included in software
industry revenues), or where the software development and also the outcome of
the project is paid by the external customer (contract software development).<o:p></o:p></span></p>

importance of the software projects as a mean to produce software, there have
been many researches trying to recognize the key elements of software project
success or indications which foretell beforehand potential software project
failure. Especially, when it comes to loss of money and resources because of
the software project failure, finding the reasons for software project failures
is important.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
