Lean Architecture

Lean Architecture

If we capture the form (including its associations and attributes) without expanding into full structure (for example, methods and data members), we stay Lean. That leads to an architecture that can scale and evolve better than one ...

More and more Agile projects are seeking architectural roots as they struggle with complexity and scale - and they're seeking lightweight ways to do it Still seeking? In this book the authors help you to find your own path Taking cues from Lean development, they can help steer your project toward practices with longstanding track records Up-front architecture? Sure. You can deliver an architecture as code that compiles and that concretely guides development without bogging it down in a mass of documents and guesses about the implementation Documentation? Even a whiteboard diagram, or a CRC card, is documentation: the goal isn't to avoid documentation, but to document just the right things in just the right amount Process? This all works within the frameworks of Scrum, XP, and other Agile approaches

Apply lean principles to your next architectural project and improve your bottom line with the help of this practical volume Lean Architecture: Excellence in Project Delivery shows readers a path to improve their project delivery via the application of lean concepts and process management. Authors Michael Czap and Gregory Buchanan challenge readers to reexamine their approach to architectural practice and projects by presenting a unique and compelling alternative. Lean Architecture details the crucial metrics and implementation strategies that combine to improve the efficiency and profitability of projects taken on by firms of all sizes. Readers will learn to: Maximize the use of their resources to deliver superior results in less time Minimize waste, cost, and inefficiency in their firm’s operations Move between radically different project scales while retaining efficient and effective processes Lean Architecture is perfect for firm leaders, project managers, and project architects who seek to improve their ability to deliver better results while reducing their cost base. Students, designers and emerging professionals will also benefit by learning key principles for more effectively executing design ideas.

This book explores the application of agile and lean techniques, originally from the field of software development and manufacturing, to various aspects of education. It covers a broad range of topics, including applying agile teaching and learning techniques in the classroom, incorporating lean thinking in educational workflows, and using team-based approaches to student-centred activities based on agile principles and processes. Demonstrating how agile and lean ideas can concretely be applied to education, the book offers practical guidance on how to apply these ideas in the classroom or lecture hall, as well as new concepts that could spark further research and development.

Lean Office Practices for Architects is a reference book used in the DLR Associates seminar by the same name. A student uses this book along with seminar materials to complete a three day course in Continuing Education. A CD with diagrams, figures and tables support the book when the student begins to learn what lean office practices are and how to preform the cost savings involved with this process. The technique of using a lean process in the practice of architecture is a powerful one. The use of a lap top, wireless routing and portability, on and off the job site is absolutely critical as we enter the last ninety years of this century. I would encourage you, the reader, to skip over those chapters that you have already completed in your study of lean productivity analysis. This reference book was completed after fifteen years of consulting and thirty years of teaching at Clemson University. Whenever I found a "short cut" or a lean process for architects, I put it in a large three ring notebook. This publication is the "best of the notebook."

Architecture knowledge management (AKM) aims to codify and maintain the architectural knowledge of a software system in a form that can be easily accessed by different stakeholders. Integrating AKM with an agile project management paradigm is a challenge because the agile philosophy downplays both plan-driven development and documentation. Yet, by integrating lightweight AKM practices with the process, agile software development could avoid maintenance and communication problems arising from scarce documentation. In this chapter, we introduce existing technologies that could be used as elements of lightweight AKM for agile software development and present possible models to integrate AKM with Scrum, which is the most popular agile approach in use today. In particular, we advocate the exploitation of architectural evaluations to collect architecturally significant information semiautomatically and the use of automated document generation to expose the contents of an architectural information repository in an easily accessible form. The proposed models are based on observed architecting work practices in industry and on interviews carried out in industry to identify the architectural information flow in real-life agile projects.

Winner Of The 2007 Shingo Prize For Excellence In Manufacturing Research! Lean production, which has radically benefited traditional manufacturing, can greatly improve the software industry with similar methods and results. This transformation is possible because the same overarching principles that apply in other industries work equally well in software development. The software industry follows the same industrial concepts of production as those applied in manufacturing; however, the software industry perceives itself as being fundamentally different and has largely ignored what other industries have gained through the application of lean techniques. Lean Software Strategies: Proven Techniques for Managers and Developers, shows how the most advanced concepts of lean production can be applied to software development and how current software development practices are inadequate. Written for software engineers, developers, and leaders who need help creating lean software processes and executing genuinely lean projects, this book draws on the personal experiences of the two authors as well as research on various software companies applying lean production to software development programs.
