I've never had a high opinion of any of the formal software methodologies or their promoters. They all whiffed strongly of efforts by management to transform software development into a turn-the-crank process.

My group has run into this quite a bit, since we are a software group embedded in an engineering/R&D organization managed by mechanical engineers. The M.E.'s seem to be very fond of highly-detailed procedures for managing hardware development. I can see where these things work for them, but they're rarely applicable to software.

At the moment we're fairly free of this nonsense. As long as we produce, they're leaving us alone.
