Hewlett Packard DST Project
Mr. William Woo, DST project manager, gave a presentation on June 24,
1994 which we attended. He was kind enough to share his slides with us.
Team has six developers.
Instead of a heavy emphasis on documents as deliverables, brief (e. g.,
1-2 page product data sheet) documents are written.
Within a development cycle, each engineer is assigned "bite
size" functionality to implement. An example of a checkpoint within the cycle is a design review,
per engineer. In design review the code of a working prototype is examined. Another per
engineer checkpoint is "functions complete."
Code reviews are done whenever the engineers want them.
"Key thing in this for managers is measuring the ability of your engineers."
"Do everything as small as possible for meaningful releases."
The team has an ad-hoc source code management scheme.
Because Mr. Woo has experience managing QA, we found his process had
emphasis on testing. Engineers write their own unit test code, and they also use an in house
tool that generates test code. Testing is performed on several component levels.
Our feeling about this process: although it seemed somewhat informal,
it works because of the skills of the team members, and Mr. Woo's knowledge of his team's
abilities. The emphasis on testing is better than most Smalltalk projects we have
