All SW is buggy.  You want customers to buy YOUR buggy SW, not your
competitors.  Meeting company deadlines maintains your market presence.   It
is a management mandated approach, not a vote by committee approach.  It is
not very much liked by engineering, who rightfully, wants to release SW that
is bug free.

Getting good SW engineers to work towards deadlines is harder than it
sounds.  Losing customers is the best way to having a short term business.
If you involve engineering in understanding WHY it is important to release
on a schedule, they tend to support the decision.

Typical project manager approach, AKA 'buy our buggy software' ;-)
