Example text

R Model to understand. This is the commonest role of modelling, that is, modelling to understand the domain within which your system must be implemented and modelling to understand how the system must be structured to meet its requirements. r Model to communicate. The second reason to model is to communicate your ideas with one or more people. For example, creating a model to discuss how two subsystems will interact or how a particular instance of a generic concept must be crafted. 3 Interactions Between Practices Although Agile Modelling defines a set of practises that will promote its main aims, it is not necessarily very clear how they relate.

Thus, the model will need refinement at a later date when some missing information or understanding becomes available. I know some of you may be thinking that you should not move on from the modelling phase until you have this information, but in the real world there are times when you don’t have a choice. 5. You must use a CASE tool. By this I mean that if you are going to do some modelling you must use some form of Computer Aided Software Engineering tool such as TogetherSoft’s Together Control Centre or Rational’s Rose.

6. If this is the final iteration, then the final version of the system is delivered (if it is not the final iteration, then the current system may still be delivered to end users for early and frequent feedback). This is possible as each feature should be useful in the eyes of the various project stakeholders in their own right. Thus, being feature-centric allows control to be regained over the agile development process as: r features combine requirements with planning, r timeboxes provide a structure to the plan and define how much time is available to implement the features, 2 · Agile Methods and the Agile Manifesto 29 Detailed Prioritised Feature list Plan iterations / Select features Each iteration Revise Features for current iteration Build feature Analyse Feature in detail Design Feature Implement Feature Test Feature time up?
