System Engineers, Agile has a problem with you. It does not know what to do with you. Just think about it, Agile advocates small cross-functional teams that define, design, implement, and test software. Where do systems and Systems Engineers fit it?
Well, it was not until we attempted to build systems using agile techniques, that we realized we needed to scale up these techniques and incorporate system engineering processes. Multiple frameworks have come into the limelight for scaling agile. The most popular is the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). And, sound the horns, Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) is making a resurgence. SAFe has, conceptually included MBSE and a role for System Engineers in its Large Solution configuration, but most of the implementation details have been left to the user.
In this presentation we will talk about a number of techniques that fill in these details. So hold on, the ride might get a little bumpy.
The presenter will be Peter Luckey, a Senior Solutions Consultant at 321 Gang, a Certified Scrum Master and a Certified SAFe Program Consultant (5.0). He received his master's degree in computer science from Purdue University. Peter began his professional career in IBM's Federal Systems Division as a programmer and became the manager of IBM's Rational Software Development Environment. Concurrently, Peter worked as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the State University of New York Binghamton teaching software engineering and publishing a number of papers on the subject. Since joining Rational, Peter has been involved in selling and supporting Rational, now IBM, tools and the processes supported by these tools. These processes include topics such as Agile, MBSE, and SAFe. Recently, Peter has also become Certified relative to Polarion/ALM, and is working on his Atlassian certification.
