This presentation was created for a conference series or symposium and does not necessarily reflect the positions and views of the Software Engineering Institute.
In this presentation, an example program is analyzed for sustainability based on its lifecycle as it progressed through the Air Force's process of being developed and maintained over a full year. The metrics and process follow the Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) and Agile software development. By using both development tools together, the performance factors of efficiency and productivity achieved much better results. Using data collected throughout the program's lifecycle, this presentation shows which metrics yielded the best feedback for optimizing the process for the program. Statistical analysis of these metrics gives a deep dive into how the implementation of both CMMI and Agile work well for organizations like the Air Force to produce very adaptive, cost-effective software rapidly and with maximum efficiency and productivity.
