Many software projects collapse under the weight of their own complexity. Why does this happen again and again, to competent organizations? This article introduces a new guideline for software design to help you avoid a familiar fate.
Here is the sorted set of data values that will be used in the following example: Stemplot — Constructing a stem-and-leaf display Next, it must be determined what the stems will represent and what the leaves will represent. Typically, the leaf contains the last digit of the number and the stem contains all of the other digits.
In the case of very large numbers, the data values may be rounded to a particular place value such as the hundreds place that will be used for the leaves. The remaining digits to the left of the rounded place value are used as the stem.
Stemplot — Constructing a stem-and-leaf display In this example, the leaf represents the ones place and the stem will represent the rest of the number tens place and higher. Stemplot — Constructing a stem-and-leaf display The stem-and-leaf display is drawn with two columns separated by a vertical line.
The stems are listed to the left of the vertical line. It is important that each stem is listed only once and that no numbers are skipped, even if it means that some stems have no leaves.
The leaves are listed in increasing order in a row to the right of each stem. Stemplot — Constructing a stem-and-leaf display It is important to note that when there is a repeated number in the data such as two 72s then the plot must reflect such so the plot would look like 7 2 2 5 6 when it has the numbers 72 72 75 76 Stemplot — Constructing a stem-and-leaf display Rounding may be needed to create a stem-and-leaf display.
Based on the following set of data, the stem plot below would be created: This allowed the stem and leaf plot to retain its shape, even for more complicated data sets.

Folded leaflets — Concertina fold In bookbinding a leporello binding has its pages concertina-folded, as above, but also has front and back boards so that it can be handled like a normal book.
Sometimes there is a spine too, which provides a normal page-turning experience while eliminating the gutter of normal bookbinding. Folded leaflets — French fold Takes a concertina fold, folded in half down the middle to create 8 individual sections.
Folded leaflets — Double parallel fold In double parallel folds the paper is folded in half and then folded in half again with a fold parallel to the first fold.
