Feature Driven Development


Definition

Feature Driven Development, FDD, is just that.

It is a short-iteration development process that delivers features in logical incremental intervals.


FDD Activities
  • Develop an Overall Model
  • Build a Feature List
  • Plan by Feature
  • Design by Feature
  • Build by Feature


History

FDD was created by Jeff De Luca to meet the specific needs of a 15 month, 50 person software development project at a large bank in Singapore in 1997. There was a second project that was 18 months and 250 persons. He delivered a set of five processes that covered the development of an overall model and the listing, planning, design and building of features.

The development of an overall model process was heavily influenced by Peter Coad´s approach to object modeling. Building a feature list process incorporates Peter Coad's ideas of using a feature list to manage functional requirements and development tasks.


The other three processes and the blending of the processes into a cohesive whole is a result of Jeff De Luca's experience. Since its successful use on the Singapore project there have been several implementations of FDD.

The description of Feature Driven Development was first introduced in Chapter 6 of the book Java Modeling in Color with UML by Peter Coad, Eric Lefebvre and Jeff De Luca in 1999.

The latest Feature Driven Development processes can be found on Jeff De Luca´s website under the ´Article´ area. There is also a Community website available at which people can learn more about FDD, questions can be asked, and experiences and the processes itself are discussed.


Agile Development

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan"


Software Development Life Cycle Methodologies

There are several different Software Development Life Cycle Methods.

Some have been around for years and years and some are relatively new.

Software Development Process

Software Development Processes are standards that a Software Development Team uses to help manage, control and report on their software development.

Here are some very typical SDP Steps:

  • Plan
  • Define
  • Construct
  • Test
  • Deploy

Software Engineering Best Practices

There are many Software Engineering Best Practices.

Here are some of the more commonly used SE Best Practices

  • Iteratively Develop Software
  • Actively Manage Specifications and Requirements
  • Develop and Leverage Component-based Software
  • Continuously Review and Improve your Software Development Practices
  • Verify and Quantify Software Quality
  • Manage Software Change

Software Engineering

The IEEE Computer Society defines Software Engineering as the application of a systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approach to the development, maintenance and operation of software.

Software Development Life Cycle Table of Contents

Software Development Life Cycle Software Development Life Cycle is the process in which you encapsulate your software development. Specifically meaning, it is the process and tools you use to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of your software development efforts.

Agile SCM Implementing Agile Software Configuration Management processes and practices will help your ability to successfully implement Agile software development processes.

Agile Software Agile software attempts to minimize risk by developing software in short iterations. This development methodology is about adaptability. Because of the chaotic nature of software development, it may be impossible to control or to predict.

Agile Source Code Providing agile source code control processes and procedures greatly aids an organization's ability to successfully implement Agile software development processes.

Feature Driven Development Feature Driven Development, FDD, is a short-iteration development process. It consists of five basic activities: Develop an Overall Model, Build a Feature List, Plan by Feature, Design by Feature, Build by Feature

Software Development Processes The Software Development Process, SDP, is the methodology used by a development team to produce software.

Software Development Life Cycle Models Software Development Life Cycle Models are systems and processes a software developer or software development team leverage to systematically produce software: Agile, Feature Driven Development, Waterfall, Object Oriented, Prototyping.

Software Engineering The IEEE Computer Society defines Software Engineering as the application of a systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approach to the development, maintenance and operation of software.

Software Engineering Best Practices Software Engineering Best Practices, SE Best Practices are the processes and techniques that have been proven over time to provide successful Software Engineering Results. When searching the Internet, there are many Software Engineering Best Practices to be found on the World Wide Web. Here are some of the more commonly used and proven SE Best Practices.

Software Requirements Software Requirements are the details and specifications about how the software should act and behave. There are several types requirements: Business, Functional, Non-Functional, User and System Requirements.

Software Requirements Template Software Requirements Template is an outline of a Software Requirements Specification that was used in a large software company. It is not meant to be the one and only way to do cover your Software Requirements. It is intended to be a starting point for you or your organization to approach Software Requirements.
