  Methodology (software engineering) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In software engineering and project management, a methodology is a codified set of practices (sometimes accompanied by training materials, formal educational programs, worksheets, and diagramming tools) that may be repeatably carried out to produce software.
Many methodologies clearly enumerate the state of the art, but add nothing that is not widely known.
Methodologies in and of themselves are meaningless without clear expectations.

 Methodology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Methodology is defined as (1) "a body of methods, rules, and postulates employed by a discipline", (2) "a particular procedure or set of procedures", or (3) "the analysis of the principles or procedures of inquiry in a particular field"
Methodology refers to more than a simple set of methods; rather it refers to the rationale and the philosophical assumptions that underlie a particular study.
In software engineering and project management, 'methodology' is often used to refer to a codified set of recommended practices, sometimes accompanied by training materials, formal educational programs, worksheets, and diagramming tools.

 The New Methodology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
For many people the appeal of these agile methodologies is their reaction to the bureaucracy of the engineering methodologies.
People who work on methodology are not very good at identifying boundary conditions: the places where the methodology passes from appropriate in inappropriate.
Most methodologists want their methodologies to be usable by everyone, so they don't understand nor publicize their boundary conditions.

 Use of System Development Methodologies
Over eighty­five percent of the organizations report that their methodology is adapted on a project by project basis, and over half do not believe that it was important to use the methodology on all projects.
Methodologies may be purchased and adapted because it is cheaper than developing a new methodology in­house, and methodologies must be continually refined to meet changing needs (Van De Velde, 1992).
However, later in the study it becomes clear that although these organizations are able to use the methodologies and their related tools to perform the types of activities they see as important (such as using structured techniques), they may not be using the entire methodology to do this.

 J2EE Software Development Methodologies > Software Development Methodologies   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
A methodology, as illustrated in Figure 2.2, encapsulates an SDLC, and describes a general philosophy for developing the software solution, as well as what is expected from each of its phases in terms of inputs, outputs, and the respective coordination of any activities.
Methodologies are not technology-bound, and in essence, they cannot afford to be.
However, if you take a closer look at the methodologies at a very high level, there are certain core activities or phases that span them all; the only disparity is that they are fine-tuned or enhanced in their exact implementation and how they are practiced.

 Methodologies in IT: Comprehension, Selection, and Implementation > What Is a Methodology?
Methodologies have been among the most discussed and least implemented of all approaches to improving software quality and productivity in the global IT industry.
Methodologies can be combined with any type of technology: standard application-development tools; databases; languages such as C, C++, or even COBOL; web services, Java, J2EE; autonomic software, grids, and utility computing.
Methodologies frequently have a deliverable in the form of a business case that defines the economics, benefits, costs, resources needed, and so on, ensuring that the project is oriented toward the company's business needs.

While the development of novel methodologies is a major goal of academic chemists, the academic chemistry community has not generally embraced the development of methods that are specifically applicable to diversity-oriented synthesis.
Leaders in the pharmaceutical industry (where diversity oriented synthesis is used extensively) view the limitations of current methodology as a problem of considerable urgency and see this as a significant impediment to the identification of drug candidates in new classes and with new mechanisms of action.
Fundamental methodologies A minimum of three faculty-level (or the equivalent) participants (which may include the PI), each proposing one or more projects that are focused on chemistry methodology, are required for each CMLD Center.

 Testing Methodologies (patterns & practices)
Although each methodology is designed for a specific purpose and has its own advantages and disadvantages, most methodologies divide the life cycle into phases and share tasks across these phases.
Although the iterative methodologies tend to remove the disadvantage of sequential models, they still are based on the traditional waterfall approach.
Agile methodology is a collection of values, principles, and practices that incorporates iterative development, test, and feedback into a new style of development.

 STSC CrossTalk - Agile Methodologies and Process Discipline - Oct 2002   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The compatibility of agile methodologies with plan-driven methodologies as described by the CMM is summarized and critiqued.
Modifications to the agile methodologies needed for those environments may be great enough that the synergistic effects of the set of practices in an agile methodology are lost.
Even though agile methodologies may be compatible in principle with the discipline of models such as the CMM, the implementation of those methodologies must be aligned with the spirit of the agile philosophy and with the needs and interests of the customer and other stakeholders.

 Messages on 'Re: How Many Project Management Methodologies are there??'
Of course the intend for the usage of this metaphor was to try to highlight the difference between a methodology, a technique and a tool because people tend to be confused about that when they discuss methodology.
A good methodology is also a complete "recipe" that stands together and I agree that taking only pieces here and there might result in a incomplete and unefficient usage or implementation of the methodology.
Here, methodology is seen as a "recipe", telling us ingredient to use, the sequence and steps to conduct to improve the probability of success.

 AIS: CASE Modeling Methodology
Nonetheless it is a workable, easily learned methodology which has been taken up, either by choice or for government contracts, by many modelers.
Object Role Modeling (ORM) or NIAM schools represent that their methodologies accomplish precisely that, in addition to enabling the capture of a much larger range of structural features and constraints than in ER based methods.
Notice that in the upper half the techniques funnel downward toward coalescence and conceptual clarity (or into the fl hole of bloated, aborted projects); in the lower half the process fans rapidly out as automated algorithms replicate abstract patterns to implement details (e.g., a simple foreign key reference propagates a lengthy SQL trigger).
