Scrap and Build

When you try to create something better, there are only two ways to do this. One way is to use what already exists and make modifications to improve it. The second option is to create something new from the ground up. Both have their advantages.

Advantages of Improvement

  • Usually Faster
  • Costs Less
  • Compatible with Current System

    Advantages of “Scrap and Build”

  • Clean System
  • Latest Technologies

    You usually do not choose one or the other. You try to prolong what you have by fixing it for as long as you can. You then rebuild everything when it is no longer possible to upgrade or fix the system.

    You also have to rebuild from scratch when you have some kind of accident. In my business, all of the software we build gets old as technologies and environments change. So we are constantly upgrading and fixing our products. We eventually get to the point where we can no longer fix and are forced to recreate.

    When we recreate a product, the cycle of upgrades and fixes will restart. It is a never-ending cycle.
