prototyping is surely a way to go, but prototypes often differ from real systems and we end up in the same situation as described above.

comment How do you educate your customers?
Thanks for the replay. I think I did not express my self clear enough. I mean "educate" by all good means. Lets say to give the customer more information, so we achieve a win-win. For example as you say, the customer changes his mind, it is sometimes because of lack of information. So how to "educate" the customer about the software creation process, so he can get most of it. Even in non-fix prices projects, the customer will not pay for endless iterations. Even if the project is internal it has some budget limitations.

comment user's requirements verification, howto?
Users have the requirements - developers create the software. Don't care who verifies what, the problem is we code a lot of lines and than have to change them, because of changing (or missing) requirements - question: how to avoid?

The problem is: users usually wait until they have the running software and than start thinking about details. It is the logical way of thinking actually. First the most important, than the details. but for software details are as important as the main logic.

Iterative process. It is very good, but it still not exclude the "small details" poping up in a late iteration... where you have to change a lot of code to integrate this "samll details".
