Systems are becoming increasingly reliant on software due to needs for rapid fielding of “70% capabilities,” interoperability, net-centricity, and rapid adaptation to change. The latter need has led to increased interest in agile methods of software development, in which teams rely on shared tacit interpersonal knowledge rather than explicit documented knowledge. However, such systems often need to be scaled up to higher level of performance and assurance, requiring stronger architectural… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • The dotted red lines show the effect on the cost of architecting and total cost if rapid change adds 50% to the cost of architecture and risk resolution.
  • Analysis of the new release measures showed that in the first increment after the process changes were implemented, the cost per LSS dropped 29%, cycle time dropped 46%, and error rates at the alpha site dropped 90%.
