Feature Driven Development (FDD)
• Agile Process
• Incremental
• Short Iterations
• Model-Driven
• Five Processes
• Feature
Agile Process
Why FDD?
• Emphasizes quality
• Deliver frequent tangible results
• Visible reporting
• Communication
• Decomposes problem
• Distance between analysis and test phase reduced
• Developing by feature
Feature
• Small client valued function
• Implemented 10 days
• Template
• <action>the <result><by/for/of/to><a/an><object>
• Example
• Calculate the total of an account
• Display the total of a balance
Feature Set
• Group of Business Related Features
• <action><-ing><a/an><object>
• Example
• Creating an account
• Features
• Calculate the total of an account
• Display the total of an account
Feature Teams
• Chief Programmer
• Temporary 2-week team
• Members can be in multiple teams
Feature Team 1
Feature Team 2
Class Ownership
• Individual class ownership
• Sense of ownership
• Local consistency
• Quicker changes
• Local expert
Roles
• Project Manager
• Chief Architect
• Development Manager
• Chief Programmers
• Class Owners (Developers)
• Domain Experts
Supporting Roles
• Release Manager
• Language Guru
• Build Engineer
• Toolsmith
• System Administrator
Process Development
• Lightweight
• Well-defined
• Simple
Creates
• Repeatable success
• Scalability to larger projects
• Result focus rather than process micro-stepping
• Shorter learning curve
