There are many decisions made during the processes of software development and there are several decision-making methods that could be used in any specific circumstance. International standards for software and systems engineering tend to assume a specific decision-making method will be used in some processes while in others the decision-making method is implied rather than explicitly stated. An empirical study investigated which decision-making methods were used by practicing software developers. The study found that practitioners used a variety of methods, highlighting the need for flexible processes and flexible assessment of those processes where decision-making is concerned.
