KISS – Keep It Stupid Simple

KISS - Keep it Stupid Simple

KISS, an acronym for “keep it simple, stupid” or “keep it stupid simple”, is a design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore, simplicity should be a key goal in design, and unnecessary complexity should be avoided. The phrase has been associated with aircraft engineer Kelly Johnson (Lockheed Skunk Works, team lead of P38, U2, F104, SR71 projects). (Wikipedia)
