(Gold plating (software engineering)) Gold plating in software engineering (or time management in general) refers to continuing to work on a project or task well past the point where the extra effort is worth the value it adds (if any).
Having a thin layer of gold applied to the surface, often by an electrolytic method; incorporating costly or otherwise excessive features or refinements unnecessarily; to be over-engineered; to be embellished to excess, especially so as to be stifling, or rigid and inflexible
Likely to prove profitable; secure
Gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal, most often copper or silver (to make silver-gilt), by chemical or electrochemical means.
For thousands of years, devices have been used to measure and keep track of time. The current sexagesimal system of time measurement dates to approximately 2000 BC, in Sumer. The Ancient Egyptians divided the day into two 12-hour periods, and used large obelisks to track the movement of the Sun.
