I don't mind trying to help you even if it's homework. However, I'm not sure I understand the question. Are you asking what are external factors that influence software development? Would you mind clarifying your question a little?

I'm still not sure what you mean by "software construction". I've never heard this term before. Are we talking about factors that influence software engineering? Are we talking about what influences software development in a business environment?

I'll throw a stab in the dark at trying to answer a question I don't fully understand.

Factors that affect software development:
1. Time - Having lots versus a little.
2. Budget - What can I afford to staff and build
3. COTS Components - What 3rd party components exist and can I use.
4. Market demands - If my widget doesn't include the features that all other competiters have and customers demand it, then I will fail.

I would also add corperate politics to the list. Managers tend to want things done on time and under budget. Developers tend to want to use the coolest new technolodgy they can find. Architects tend to want to build architectures that are intellectually pleasing to them. I find there is a constant tug-o-war going on between the wants / needs of the individuals on a project.

What they're hitting on in a round about way is the most important external factor: People. The effects of people (and leadership/managment of those people) are tremendous on software development.

Cheers,
