Agile Development & Services
FEI Systems uses Agile-Scrum software development methodology to enable continuous customer feedback through early and progressive delivery of working software. We use an Agile-Scrum approach because it promotes teamwork and encourages constant communication, knowledge sharing, and participation in all aspects of the software development lifecycle. This framework enables us to manage complex development while productively and creatively delivering a high- quality, cost-effective products.
FEI Systems employs the Agile-Scrum methodology as our software development methodology to execute application development projects. Agile is a time-boxed and iterative approach to software development that builds software incrementally beginning at project start rather than delivering all at once near the end of the project. Scrum is a proven framework for implementing Agile.
Using Scrum, software is developed in a series of brief, fixed-length iterations called Sprints, each of which includes Sprint Planning, a Daily Stand-up, a Sprint Demo, and a Sprint Retrospective. These short 2- to 3-week iterations are powerful ways to remain on scope, achieve milestones, enhance transparency, and receive rapid feedback. This allows us to get information to the customer quickly, promote transparency, make changes nimbly, and enhance efficiencies.
FEI is expert and certified in the Scaled Agile Framework or SAFe. SAFe is a framework that seeks to address the problems encountered when scaling beyond a single team. We use SAFe to promote alignment, collaboration, and delivery across multiple Agile teams. SAFe leverages Agile software development, Lean product development, and systems thinking.
FEI’s Agile software development approach provides significant benefits to the development team, the client, and the application. It allows clients to determine feature priorities, so the development team can deliver features that provide optimum client business value. Some of the many benefits include:
- Greater Alignment—with our client’s expectations and needs
- Improved Stakeholder Engagement—and collaboration between the project team and client
- Transparency—promoting client involvement and the ability to review work in progress
- Rapid and Predictable Delivery—and more rapid releases or beta testing
- Improved Quality—of development, code, testing, and collaboration
- User Centric—by focusing on the needs of real users via user stories and acceptance criteria
