Some thoughts on No Silver Bullet

I was reading No Silver Bullet from Frederick P. Brooks, Jr. I was wondering about the meaning of the sentence “These gains flow from the transformation of computer manufacture from an assembly industry to a process industry”.

I want to report my first attempts to decipher this, in order to clarify myself and hopefully help others.

Finally, I want to point out a useful article from Poul-Henning Kamp that helps clarifying the first chapter of the Mythical Man Month.
