What are five common problems in the software development process?

What are five common problems in the software development process?
1) Poor requirements - if requirements are unclear, incomplete, too general, or
not testable, there will be problems.
2) Unrealistic schedule - if too much work is crammed in too little time, problems
are inevitable.
3) Inadequate testing - no one will know whether or not the program is any good
until the customer complains or systems crash.
4) Featuritic - requests to pile on new features after development is underway;
extremely common.
5) Miscommunication - if developers don't know what is needed or customers
have erroneous expectations, problems are guaranteed.
