Using Architecture-Centric Engineering on a TSP Project
This presentation was created for the SATURN conference series and does not necessarily reflect the positions and views of the Software Engineering Institute.
In summer 2009, the SEI began a project with Bursatec (the
IT arm of the Mexican Stock Exchange) to replace their main online
stock-trading engine. The project has aggressive goals for performance and
delivery and must function flawlessly.
The SEI answer to this challenge was to blend two of its
methodologies, architecture-centric engineering (ACE) and the Team
Process (TSP). Those attending the presentation will learn how:
Key concepts of the TSP framework, and a process
structure for iterative development by self-directed teams, provide management
early visibility into the team progress.
ACE practices are combined with TSP to launch the
architecture phase of a project, and can help guide and train junior architects
throughout the phase.
An architecture-centered approach provided early
measures of quality. The combined approach offers help to organizations to set
an architecture/developer team in motion using mature, disciplined engineering
practices that produce quality software quickly.
This presentation was given at SATURN 2011 in Burlingame, CA.
