Software Factories

Clicking through from James Robertson's item about Smalltalk and C#(?), another item refers to Software Factories.

I will wager any system using a factory metaphor for software development will either not get off the ground or hover low to the ground for some time until they shift the metaphor to something lighter weight. Like balloons.

I've worked with some people who call their shop a software factory and refer to the work of Deming in some of their talks. They are an XP shop, so the process is remarkably lightweight for something called a factory:
