End user development involves the development of a system creating a solution to a problemdevelopment team. More powerful computers and application software mean that a software solution can be created quickly. The cost of the solution is also reduced as outside help is not used. The user is also more familiar with the application because of developing it and so needs no more training in its use.

Advantages include: low cost, rapid development time, little need for training, ease of modification by the user and suitability for the individual’s task.

Disadvantages include: a lack of documentation of the development process that may make modification difficult after a long period of time and a number of different users may develop the same application.
