Stove Piped Development

Definition - What does Stove Piped Development mean?

Stove piped development deals with the design and creation of a system to solve an immediate problem without regard to future connectivity or integration with other systems. Stove pipe applications do not share resources or data with other applications.

Techopedia explains Stove Piped Development

The term stove piped development was coined by the U.S. Army to describe methods developed in isolation, not considering how the system might be used with future technologies.

Stove pipe systems generally lack coordination and planning across the system. Any new added capability increases the system complexity all along the life cycle of the project. These systems do not interact with other systems. Moreover, any new changes introduced might create new bugs.
