  2. jgs 0516 0010 Software Agility § Agile – Process Model

    § Definition: Organized set of steps
  3. jgs 0516 0010 Process Models Linear Iterative Parallel Plan-driven Agile

    Change Agile emerged in the late 1990s and it aim was to radically reduce the delivery time for working software systems
  4. jgs 0516 0010 Process Models Linear Iterative Parallel Plan-driven Agile

    Change An Adaptive (Informal) Plan + daily work tracking A Contract
  5. jgs 0516 0010 Agile Manifesto § Through this work we

    have come to value: Individuals and interactions over processes and tools, Working software over comprehensive documentation, Customer collaboration over contract negotiation, Responding to change over following a plan. § That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
  6. jgs 0516 0010 Agile Manifesto Human-Human Interaction Process Working Software

    Documents Plan Change while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
  7. jgs 0516 0010 Applicability § Product development where a software

    company is developing a small or medium-sized product for sale. Several software products and apps nowadays are small or medium- sized; therefore, they are developed using an agile approach. § Custom system development within an organization, where there is a clear commitment from the customer to become involved in the development process and where there are few external rules and regulations that affect the software.
  8. jgs 0516 0010 Pros § The product is broken down

    into a set of manageable and understandable chunks. § Unstable requirements do not hold up progress. § The whole team have visibility of everything and consequently team communication is improved. § Customers see on-time delivery of increments and gain feedback on how the product works.
  9. jgs 0516 0010 Cons § The informality of agile development

    is incompatible with the legal approach to contract definition (requirement specification) that is commonly used in large companies. § Agile methods are most appropriate for new software development rather than software maintenance (documentation). Yet most software costs in large companies come from maintaining their existing software systems.

    Small (sized appropriately) Testable (pass or fail)
  11. jgs 0516 0010 Homework § Working alone or in a

    team of 2, 3, 4, or 5 define the requirements for the Pac-man videogame § Submit a list with at least 25 functional requirements § You can add non-functional requirements (they are extra to the 25 required) § Remember, check each of your candidates for the the (1) is it Small?, (2) is it Testable?, (3) is it Unambiguous/Clear?
