Selecting Software Development Lifecycles For each of the four problem scenarios, evaluate and score each of the project characteristics listed on page 2 as either Agile Home Ground or Planned Home Ground. Create a summary table of your results for each project and suggest whether the project should be (1) planned, (2) hybrid/iterative, or (3) agile. Write a short paragraph for each project justifying your response as to why you think the approach you identified is the best. 1. An organization is rewriting its Accounts Payable system to move it from an old batch-type mainframe system to a Web-enabled system. No new functionality will be added. The statement of work calls for conversion “as is”. Only the input and output systems will be altered for the new environment. Because it is a financial application, testing and verification will be emphasized within the development activities. The schedule allows five months for the project, with two people working on it. What do you think is the most appropriate life cycle approach? What is the advantage of this approach for this project? 2. An electronics company has recently decided to venture into a business area developing smartphones. The smartphone will be designed to run on high-speed networks. The company has considerable previous experience with low cost, voice and text only, mobile phones and believes that a cheaper price could present a value-added challenge to the smartphone market. It would like to have a working model to present at a national electronics fair coming up 90 days from now. What do you think is the most appropriate life cycle approach? What is the advantage of this approach for this project? 3. A leading consumer goods company has recently completed a 3-year process to develop a global configuration management system. It is now ready to move into the next phase, where new releases will be issued approximately every three months. An average of 12 new features and an appropriate number of bug fixes will be included in each release spread across teams composed of one to three engineers, located in India, Russia and the United States. Development times for the new features can range from one to five months. Some features can require multiple releases for full implementation. What do you think is the most appropriate life cycle approach? What is the advantage of this approach for this project? 4. The marketing department of an investment management organization has created a new business division focused on developing a new mobile phone app and taking the app to market. Approximately 12 people will be transferred from key areas of the company to form the base for the venture. Given the competitive landscape, a primary goal of the team is to release the app as soon as possible. Significant enhancements and revisions are expected to follow after the initial release and last for a period of 12 to 18 months. What do you think is the most appropriate life cycle approach? What is the advantage of this approach for this project? Source: Topi, H. & Spurrier, G. (2019).
