  • 1. Priyanka Pimparkar MBA(SDM) 07030244013 Dynamic System Development Method
  • 2. Dynamic System Development Method
    • Originated in 1994
    • DSDM became the number one framework for Rapid Application Development (RAD)
    • Most mature agile development method
    • DSDM is about people, not tools
    • It is about truly understanding the needs of a business
    • Provides a tool and technique independent framework
  • 3. Introduction
    • Develops the system dynamically
    • Incremental prototyping
    • Preferred to fix time and resources and then adjust the amount of functionality accordingly
    • Delivering software solutions that work and delivering them as quickly and as cheaply as possible.
    • Provides a framework of controls and best practice for Rapid Application Development
  • 4. Phases of DSDM
    • 1) Pre-Project
      • Candidate projects are identified
      • Project funding is realized
      • Project commitment is ensured
  • 5. 2) Project Life-cycle Study Functional Model Iteration Identify functional prototype Agree schedule Feasibility Study Business Study Create functional prototype Review functional prototype
  • 6. 2) Project Life-Cycle Design and Build Iteration Implementation User approval and guidelines Train users Identify design prototype Agree schedule Implement Review business Create design prototype Review design prototype
  • 7.  
  • 8. 3) Post-Project
      • Ensures the system operating effectively and efficiently
      • The maintenance can be viewed as continuing development based on the iterative and incremental nature of DSDM
      • Maintenance, enhancements and fixes to the project according to DSDM principles
  • 9. 9 Key Principles
    • User involvement
    • Project team must be empowered to make decisions
    • A focus on frequent delivery of products deliver "good enough" earlier is always better than to deliver everything "perfectly" in the end
    • Delivering a system that addresses the current business needs
    • Development is iterative and incremental and driven by users’ feedback
  • 10. 9 Key Principles
    • All changes during the development are reversible
    • The high level scope and requirements should be base-lined before the project starts
    • Testing is carried out throughout the project life-cycle
    • Communication and cooperation among all project stakeholders is required
  • 11. Critical Success Factor
    • Acceptance of DSDM by senior management and other employees
    • commitment of management to ensure end-user involvement
    • Project Team
      • Skillful members
      • Stable union
      • Empowerment of the project team
      • Right technology to conduct the project
    • Supportive relationship between customer and vendor is required
  • 12. Related Methods and Quality
    • The DSDM project framework is independent of, and can be implemented in conjunction with, other iterative methodologies such as Extreme Programming and the Rational Unified Process
    • Introducing DSDM will help CMM level 1 organizations to achieve level 2
    • Concepts of DSDM can improve XP with a robust requirements and project management mechanism
  • 13. Model Advantages
    • Active user participation throughout the life of the project and iterative nature of development improves quality of the product.
    • Ensures rapid, effective and maintainable deliveries which match the needs of the business better
    • Both of the above factors result in reduced project costs
  • 14. Model Limitations
    • DSDM is a relatively new model
    • It is not very common. So it is difficult to understand
    • like with many other structured approaches, the relatively high barrier to entry (apart from the licensing costs)
    • Switching to DSDM is neither cheap nor fast, and requires a significant cultural shift in any organization
  • 15. Companies using DSDM
    • Shell
    • Loyds Bank Insurance Services
    • British Telecom
    • British Airways
    • Hewlett-Packard
    • Renault
