Cascade Day 15 - Principle #13: Use Architecture to Manage and Integrate the Deliverables

13. Given many medium to small software Deliverables, use Architecture to manage and integrate the Deliverables into a complete system.

This is a more specific statement of Principle #3; in Cascade, an Information System Architecture is used to integrate the two week deliverables, until a complete deliverable (component, sub-system) is assembled.

business receives what they are paying for often enough to be of value, but not often enough such that assimilation of change is so frequent it causes chaos.
