Expanding Your Software Horizons
The Agile Methodology follows an interactive pattern of development where work is broken down into smaller tasks that can be accomplished in a predefined period of time deemed as Sprints. It combines several of the SDLS phases into a single unit of work that will be performed during each sprint. Figure 1 illustrates the Agile Methodology.
Configuration Management Plan
Configuration Management (CM) is a generic term used to describe the generalized processes and practices for managing the design, development, deployment and maintenance of software or hardware products throughout their lifecycle.
The Software Engineering Institute identifies seven primary areas of focus for CM:
- Identification: the ability to uniquely identify software components by both functionality and release—i.e. the filename and the version. For example: “What is the most recent version of dll?”
- Control: the ability to track incremental changes to software components over the life of the product. For example, “What is the implemented feature set for the last version of the software?”
- Status Accounting: the ability to gather and report on the ongoing state or health of software components. For example, “How many bugs are currently outstanding?”
- Audit and Review: the ability to validate the state and consistency of all of the components that comprise a software product. For example, “What are the versions of the components included in the current release?”
- Manufacturing: the ability to efficiently build and deploy a software product.
- Process Management: the ability to ensure that all procedures, policies and tasks are effectively realized and carried out according to agreement, contract or convention. For example, “Were the changes to the software in the last release fully regression tested?
- Team Work: the ability to coordinate tasks and manage interactions between various members of a software development team. For example, “Have all developers checked-in most recent changes?”
The CM Processes defined in this section cover the spectrum of Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) activities from development to deployment during the configuration control process. Processes are grouped into Development, Code Management and Compilation, Deployment and Test. However, most of the processes described here are interrelated and do not stand alone. Figure 2 shows a conceptual view of the process areas and interactions between them.
