What is Development?
Construction of artefacts/systems to solve problems.
Implicit notion that new systems are better than existing.

- you must analyse and describe limitations
(cf. research projects: the result is paramount, method matters less)
- follow a well-defined project development methodology
- document the development process in the thesis
