DOE O 413 measures a project's progress to plan by the consumption of funding, the passage of time, and the meeting of milestones. In March of 2003, then Under Secretary, Energy, Science, Card received a memo directing the implementation of Project Management and the Project Management Manual, including the Integrated Master Plan and Integrated Mas...

Nicholas Carr’s, Does IT Matter? asks the question – “isn’t it enough for IT to enable companies to operate more efficiently or deliver better services, to reduce costs or heighten customer satisfaction?” [1, p. 7]. This question is the infrastructure question. Carr suggests the investments in IT have “gone to waste” after the collapse of the Inter...
Article
Full-text available
The blending of agile development process with capability maturity model integration (CMMI) is discussed. It is stated that the CMMI is a framework for improving the processes of software organizations. It is also a collection of process area components that are institutionalized across an organization. The search for better development methods is...
Article
Full-text available
The management of software development projects and the issues associated with making 'level of effort' (LOE) development tasks visible to the management team at Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site (RFETS) are discussed. Project portfolio management (PPM) provides a view of projects designed to reveal task redundancies, allocate resources, an...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The selection, procurement, and deployment of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is fraught with risk in exchange for significant business and financial rewards [26]. In many cases the packaged ERP product does not provide the entire solution for the business process. These gaps can be closed with third party products or by customizing ex...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Before any of the current "agile" development methods, earned value management provided information for planning and controlling complex projects by measuring how much "value" was produced for a given cost in a period of time. One shortcoming of an agile development method is its inability to forecast the future cost and schedule of the project bey...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
"Self-directed team" is one of the mantras of Agile Methodologies. Self-direction means that the team's manager is relegated to a facilitator role with little or no influence over day-to-day activities. For example, Kent Beck has written that the manager of an XP project can do four things: ask for estimates on cost and results, move people around...
Article
Full-text available
Traditional project management methods are based on scientific principles that would be considered "normal science," but lacks any theoretical basis for this approach. [31, 32, 63] These principles make use of linear stepwise refinement of the project management processes based on a planning-asmanagement paradigm. Plans made in this paradigm and ad...

This paper examines the effects of less than perfect diagnostics coverage on system reliability. The mathematical background for analyzing the coverage factor of fault--tolerant systems is presented in detail as well as specific examples of practical systems and their relative reliability measures. In a complex system, malfunction and even total no...

this paper, the description of architecture is taken from a variety of reliable sources. and constraints on the process of designing, developing, and deploying information systems. [Adow95], [Alle94], [Kazm96], [Perr92]. Architecture must define the parts, the essential external characteristics of each part, and the relationships between these part...
Conference Paper
There are lots of success stories for XP teams where testers made a significant contribution. There are lots of success stories for XP teams that didn’t have an official tester. There are some horror stories of so-called XP teams who didn’t have testers and didn’t do a scrap of acceptance testing. As more organizations try XP, there are a lot of te...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The use of an architecture–centered development process for delivering information technology began with the introduction of client / server based systems. Early client/server and legacy mainframe applications did not provide the architectural flexibility needed to meet the changing business requirements of the modern manufacturing organization. Wi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Component–based software development introduces new sources of risk because (i) independently developed components cannot be fully trusted to conform to their published specifications and (ii) software failures are caused by systemic patterns of interaction that cannot be localized to any individual component. The need for a separate exception hand...

With the digital computer firmly established as a research tool used by the scientist and engineer alike, a careful examination of some of the techniques used to solve the problems faced by the scientific user is warranted. This paper describes a test undertaken to determine the effectiveness of two different programming languages in providing solu...
