This wiki starts with a stock take of how most software has been developed to date, and compares the maturity of current practices for software development with the maturity of practices used in other industries. Subsequently a number of topics are covered which set the scene for introducing the concept of an automated software production facility, which turns out to be a key ingredient to fully mastering the outsourcing and offshoring game. The wiki closes with a roadmap that provides the reader with a template plan for the incremental industrialization of software production.
