Concurrent development of software systems

M. Aoyama
1987 Software engineering notes  
Fig. 2 shows the extension of waterfall paradigm from sequential to concurrent. First, project A starts the development processes. After then, project B starts the enhancement of the system.  ...  However, suppose', the project B catches up the project A at the coding stage. At this time, both projects may access the same object OBJ_A and this situation is quite similar to mutual exclusion.  ...
