Abstract:

In this issue of Crosstalk, we explore some of the technologies and techniques that continue to improve our capabilities. One great example is Wayne Abbas examination of traditional earned value methods and how the concepts can still be utilized to great benefit, even in a more agile setting. Changes to the software lifecycle are imperative to support current development needs which Don ONeill details in his article In Search of a Modern Software Lifecycle. Dr. Nary Subramanians treatise on improving and even automating of the software deployment process examines software improvements prior to delivery to the end user. Michael Elliott discusses the employment of modern software engineering techniques to critical systems, such as civil airborne systems. And the processes of process improvement are changing, as evidenced by Richard Turners examination of The Impact of Agile and Lean on Process Improvement. However, as a frequent Crosstalk contributor, Paul Kimmerly reminds us that change created by process improvement is not always simple in Processes are Easy,.
