|FREE WEBINAR – October 7, 2015|
Host: Ops A La Carte
Speaker: Robert Mueller, Senior Reliability Engineer
Date: October 7, 2015
Time: 12:00pm-1:00pm Pacific Time
Root Cause Analysis of software defects continues to confirm that design defects remain the dominate root cause of software system failures. Yet, few non-regulated software development teams using ‘agile’ development methodologies emphasize formal design reviews in their processes. The design Failure Mode & Effects Analysis methodology (dFMEA) is a proven review tool for enhancing the reliability of a product’s design. Incorporating key elements of dFMEA methodology into each iteration of the ‘agile’ development process gives the product development team a continuously increasing product reliability growth profile from the very start of the software development process.
This Webinar will explore how software development teams have successfully added the elements of the dFMEA process to their Scrum (‘agile’) development processes, sprint by sprint. We will explore how teams augmented their definition of done (DoD) with FMEA process deliverables. We will explore what design artifacts (e.g., system models, object models, sequence or interaction diagrams, etc.) are typically used with the dFMEA enhanced sw design review process. We will also explore the advantages of prioritizing the product’s backlog using both an item’s value and its technical (e.g., reliability) risk.
Join us in this in-depth exploration of how FMEA can be integrated into the ‘agile’ software development process. Most of all, do not forget to bring your questions. “Yah-buts” are encouraged!
