Programming, or XP
It is best described by this text taken
from the method's web site: "The methodology is designed to deliver the
software your customer needs when it is needed. XP empowers your
developers to confidently respond to changing customer requirements, even
late in the life cycle. This methodology also emphasizes team work.
Managers, customers, and developers are all part of a team dedicated to
delivering quality software. XP implements a simple, yet effective way to
enable groupware style development." XP is successful because it stresses
customer satisfaction. The presentation will introduce XP in some detail,
and then compare various XP methodologies and techniques to established
Systems Engineering best practices. We will review XP in the context of
other 'Agile' software (and general) product development methods, and
describe what a System's Engineer needs to know to work well with a
software team practicing XP. Can some of the XP principles apply to
traditional Systems Engineering tasks?
