A Workshop Agenda January 17, 2007 Washington, D.C. 9:00-9:15 a.m. Opening Remarks Committee on Advancing Software-Intensive Systems Producibility, William Scherlis, Chair 9:15-10:30 S ession 1: Process, Architecture, and the Grand Scale Moderator: Michael Cusumano John Vu, Boeing Rick Selby, Northrop Grumman Corporation W hat are characteristics of successful approaches to architecture and design for large-scale systems and families of systems? What are architecture ideas that can apply when systems must evolve rapidly? What kinds of management and measurement approaches could assist in guiding program managers and developers? 10:30-10:45 Break 10:45-Noon S ession 2: DoD Software Challenges for Future Systems Moderator: Douglas Schmidt Kristen Baldwin, Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for â Acquisitions, Technology and Logistics Patrick Lardieri, Lockheed Martin 47
48 SOFTWARE-INTENSIVE SYSTEMS AND UNCERTAINTY AT SCALE H ow are challenges for software in DoD systems, particularly cyber-physical systems, being met in the current environment? What advances in R&D, tech- nology, and practice do we need to achieve success as demands on this capability increase, particularly with respect to scale, complexity, and the increasingly rapid rate of evolution in requirements (and threat)? Noon-12:45 p.m. Lunch 12:45-1:20 Session 3: Agility at Scale Moderator: Douglas Schmidt Kent Beck, Three Rivers Institute Cynthia Andres, Three Rivers Institute H ow can the engineering and management val- ues that the âagile communityâ has identified be achieved for larger-scale systems and for systems that must evolve in response to rapidly changing requirements? 1:20-2:30 S ession 4: Quality and Assurance with Scale and Uncertainty Moderator: William Scherlis Joe Jarzombek, Department of Homeland Security Kris Britton, National Security Agency W hat are the particular challenges for achieving par- ticular assurances for software quality and cybersecu- rity attributes as scale and interconnection increase? What are emerging best practices and technologies? What kinds of new technologies and practices could assist? This includes, particularly, interventions that can be made as part of the development pro- cess, rather than after the fact. Interventions could include practices, processes, tools, and so on. How should cost-effectiveness be assessed? What are the prospects for certification, both at a comprehensive level and with respect to particular critical quality attributes? 2:30-2:45 Break
APPENDIX A 49 2:45-4:00 Session 4 (continued) Mary Ann Davidson, Oracle Corporation Gary McGraw, Cigital 4:00-5:15 Session 5: Enterprise Scale and Beyond Moderator: Jim Larus Werner Vogels, Amazon.com Alfred Spector, AZS-Services W hat are the characteristics of successful approaches to addressing scale and uncertainty in the commer- cial sector, and what can the defense community learn from this experience? What are the emerging software challenges for large-scale enterprises and interconnected enterprises? What do you see as emerging technology developments that relate to this? 5:15-6:00 Closing Discussion Moderator: William Scherlis All workshop participants and attendees 6:00 Adjourn
