Abstract:

The One Semi-Automated Forces OneSAF Objective System is the next generation simulation system planned to provide the U.S. Army with an entity-level simulation to serve three modeling and simulation domains. Software development of the OneSAF application has been conducted in a highly robust systems engineering environment based on commercial and government best practices. The OneSAF program has tailored techniques of Extreme Programming XP and other agile methods into a development environment that has resulted in several industry awards, most recently the National Training Systems Association Cross Function Award for the Integrated Product Team. These externally certified Capability Maturity Model registered trademark Integration Level 5 processes are credited with successful program execution. This article will discuss which XP and other agile techniques were used, which were not, and why.
