10 Unex SFIC 2009

  1. 1. Key Technologies and solutions for software factories admin@zentipede.org Software Factories International Congress
  2. 2. • In 2004, SGAE had great technological challenges to overcome. • They needed an increase of their workforce to cover all of them • With the objective of an efficient increase, they implemented a software factory • And, they decided to open it in Cáceres • The relationship between SGAE and UEX began in 2005 • Professors were involved in management and control of the factory • Project leaders realized that time spent on these tasks were too much • Zentipede: process management and monitoring tool • JACA: technology for increasing the development efficiency Software Factories International Congress
  3. 3. Index • SGAE-UEX experience • Collaboration SGAE-UEX • Factory Management Process • Needs and Problems • Lessons Learned and Key Success • Zentipede: process management and monitoring tool. • JACA: technology for increasing the development efficiency. • Conclusions Software Factories International Congress
  4. 4. SGAE-UEX experience. Collaboration • SGAE was developing an application to manage authors rights (TESEO) • It was developed internally • With the latest and greatest technological advances • In 2004, they detected the necessity of increase their workforce • Outsourcing • Business complexity • Project leaders, designers, developers, were already involve in the project • Software factory • Business needs were easier to transmit • Workforce could be increased easier • The factory was created in Cáceres, beginning the collaboration between SGAE and UEX, which lasted from 2005 to 2007 Software Factories International Congress
  5. 5. SGAE-UEX experience. Collaboration • This relationship began with the signature of a contract between SGAE and a UEX research group • Under this contract was established that: • SGAE contributed with 30 grants • UEX contributed with installations for the factory • In this sense both obtained some benefits: • SGAE achieved a group of developer trained in their business and needs • UEX achieved: • On research, attracting real problems • On teaching, giving the possibility of real and practical training Software Factories International Congress
  6. 6. SGAE-UEX experience. Factory Management Process • First step, hiring developers • Students, from Computer Science, were selected • Second step, organizing working teams • 4+1 teams • Highly flexible and reconfigurable • Third step, projects were assigned to teams. • They were usually designed in Madrid and developed in Cáceres • In order to keep a perfect control of project: • One face to face meeting per week, between project leaders and SGAE staff • Electronic applications were used to monitor projects • Another internal meeting per week, between project leaders and team leaders. • Analyzing problems detected in other meetings • Analyzing work done during the week • Showing documents with use cases completed or productivity per project Software Factories International Congress
  7. 7. SGAE-UEX experience. Needs and Problems • Needs: • Total transparency from the factory to SGAE. • Generating weekly reports with use cases sent to the factory, completed use cases, pending use cases, productivity of each worker, etc. • Problem: • Time wasted by each team leader on the generation of these reports • Solution: • Generating these reports automatically.  Zentipede Software Factories International Congress
  8. 8. SGAE-UEX experience. Lessons Learned and key success • Lessons Learned • Fruitful relationship for both • SGAE: • Improving its image in Extremadura • Developing applications at lower costs • University: • Educating a highly skilled group of engineers • The research group was strengthened by real problems • Other companies are collaborating with the university (Communi.tv,Indra,Insa,etc) • Key success: • The transparency and control of the factory • Definition of clear communication protocols • The effort of each people from University and SGAE Software Factories International Congress
  9. 9. Technologies and solutions for software factories • Result of this experience: • R+D of new technologies that can be applied to these environments Software Factories International Congress

  15. 15. Zentipede. Eclipse Plugin • Plugin that help developers to know pending tasks • At the end of each task, it automatically stores time spent, progress made and source code changes. Software Factories International Congress
  16. 16. Zentipede. Documentation Center • It helps developers to reduce duplication of effort and risks of inconsistencies • Reusing data stored in Zentipede Process Mangement • Keeping documentation in sync with the state of projects Software Factories International Congress
  17. 17. Zentipede. Benefits 1. General Objectives • Reducing efforts and automating a part of the process • It must be adapted to the software process used by each factory but, at the same time, it has to be flexible enough to allow modifications on it • Optimizing the use of resources 1. Specific objectives • Automating as many tasks as possible. • Generating a huge amount of reports Software Factories International Congress
