This chapter proposes the application of periodic wave concepts in management of software Parallel processing projects or processes. This chapter lays special emphasis on Runaway project, which create a lot of problems in Project Management for the stakeholders. This chapter proposes a new and dynamic way to control the software project estimation activity of Runaway project/processes, thereby reducing their future occurrences. This chapter also explains how the equations of unidirectional periodic Waves can be applied in software Parallel processing to measure quality and project execution in a dynamic way at any point in time. The concepts proposed here are dynamic unlike PERT/CPM and other metrics, which fail in worst-case scenarios. The Propagation Speed ‘C’ at any point in time of a stage or part of a software system executing in Parallel can be given by: C = H/ k (1). Where, H = length of the Wave (i.e. highest point), k = time taken in completing the stage.

Here, we can use the Wave sine equation (Raymond D, 2007) here to find the displacement of the Wave at any point in time as:-

y (t) = A*sin (ωt + Ө) (2)

Which describes a Wavelike function of time (t) with:

  • 1)

    peak deviation from center = A (aka Amplitude)

  • 2)

    angular frequency ω, (radians per second)

  • 3)

    phase = θ
