Yesterday, I was thinking about complexity in software systems and I had a kind of "Aha!" moment. It occurred to me that most of the programmer-hours time spent in product development are wasted. We know that something like 30% to 40% (some experts say 45%) of the features in a software system are typically never used, while another 20% are rarely used. That means over half the code written for a product seldom, if ever, actually executes.

The factors to a successful implementation are: 40 % smart users, 20% reasonable estimates and 40 % testing (programmers DO NOT test their software).
