Talk:Chrysler Comprehensive Compensation System

This article is a bit of a shambles - the timeline is not chronological and it doesn't really explain what happened.

I've reworked the article and added a little more detail, but there's obviously need for more details. However, I think it's cleran enough to remove the cleanup notice, which I have now done. — Stumps 15:34, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Timeline troubles[edit]

"In March 1996 the development team estimated that the system would be ready to go into production around one year later. In 1997 the development team adopted a way of working which is now formalized as Extreme Programming.[3] The one-year delivery target was nearly achieved, with the actual delivery being a couple of months late..."

"...C3 never managed to make another release despite two more year's development."

"DaimlerChrysler stopped the C3 project on 1 February 2000."

The estimate in 1996 was one year to production. In 1997, the team adopted/invented XP. In 1998, the team delivered the first funcitoning system. Is this right? Then how can it constitute achieving the target? It sounds like a one-year slip. If the team re-grouped in 1997 and said "one year from today, and this time, we mean it," and they went on to come within 16%- 25% of this target, then the article should reflect that. Can someone shed some light here? --Craigkbryant 20:16, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

In addition, the assertion that DaimlerChrysler resumed XP programming practice is somewhat suspect. The reference to a usenet thread leads nowhere. Also, in 2005, I was consulting there and asked around about XP practices. As far as I was informed, no one was using them, but it is also quite a large and diverse tech environment. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Titoson (talkcontribs) 01:21, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

I'll also note, that it mentions the wikipedia article. In a critical manner, should be helpful to point out what parts of the article should be more closely looked at. Mathmo Talk 21:16, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
