Personal Design and Development Software ProcessPD2SP

“The unexamined life is not worth living.”


Cynics guide to personnel management

Cynics’ Guide to Personnel Management

  • Those who work get to keep their jobs.

  • Raises become effective when you do.

  • It’s better for you to tell them than for them to find out.

How do you meet expectations and still have a life

How do you meet expectations and still have a life?

What it means to be effective

What It Means to be Effective

  • As software professionals you must know your own performance.

  • You should measure, track, and analyze your work.

  • You should learn from your performance variations.

  • You should incorporate these lessons in your personal practices.



  • Measure and analyze your personal design and development software process (PD2SP).

  • Use process data to improve your personal performance.

  • Understand variation in your work patterns.

  • Plan and estimate software development tasks.

What metrics do you need

What Metrics Do You Need?

  • Time:

    • Class, Prep for class, Recording time, Design time, Planning Time, Programming, Debugging.

    • Provide both planned and actual times.

  • Code: Quality and Quantity.

  • Results: Demonstrated Correct, Complete Code.

Cost of pd 2 dp

Cost of PD2DP

  • The time required to learn and use it.

  • The emotional cost of maintaining the needed discipline.

  • The potential risk to your ego.

Benefits of pd 2 dp

Benefits of PD2DP

  • The insight you gain into your talents and abilities.

  • The stimulation of an almost unlimited stream of ideas.

  • The framework provides for personal improvement.

  • The degree of control you gain over your time and work.

  • The feeling of pride and accomplishment.

  • An improved basis for effective teamwork.

  • The conviction to do the job the way you know you should.

By the end of the semester

By the end of the semester:

  • You will understand some methods are effective for you.

  • You will do better work.

  • You will have long-term improvement goals.

Pd 2 sp principles

PD2SP Principles

  • The quality of a software system is governed by the quality of its worst components.

  • The quality of a software component is governed by the individual who developed it.

  • You are governed by your

    • knowledge

    • discipline

    • commitment

What do you know about your software development skills

What do you know about your software development skills?

  • Can you

    • Design, estimate, and plan your work?

    • Meet your commitments?

    • Resist unreasonable commitment pressures?

  • Do you

    • Understand your ability?

    • Have an improvement plan?

A pd 2 sp also provides

A PD2SP Also Provides

  • A basis for developing and practicing industrial-strength personal disciplines.

  • A discipline that shows you how to improve your personal process.

  • The data to continually improve the productivity, quality, and predictability of your work.

What is a pd 2 sp

What is a PD2SP?

  • A personal process for developing software

  • defined steps

  • forms

  • standards

  • A measurement and analyses framework to help you characterize your process

  • A defined procedure to help you to improve your performance

Sei capability maturity matrix

SEI Capability Maturity Matrix

  • Broadly agreed-upon definition of how a software organization matures and improves.

  • Based on manufacturing process improvement and “best practices” from software engineering

  • Some dramatic successes.

Each key process area has five common features

Each key process area has five common features:

  • Goals to be achieved;

  • Ability to perform;

  • Activities performed;

  • Measurement and analysis;

  • Verification

Pd 2 sp overview

PD2SP Overview

Pd 2 sp overview1

PD2SP Overview

  • Since this is so late in your education, can’t do it all in one course.

  • Focus on how to make your more efficient in time

  • We’ll just do the first step.

Pd 2 sp0


Identify your current software development process including:

  • Planning - Produce a plan to do the work.

  • Development - The actual software development.

  • Postmortem - Comparison of actual performance with your plan.

The measurements will be

The measurements will be

  • Based on your current process.

  • Measure where you spend the bulk of your time. We will use minutes as the base granularity for data to be meaningful.

  • Defect Recording. A defect recording log is used to hold data on each defect found and corrected.

Don t panic

Don’t Panic

You will NOT be graded on how long it takes or how many defects you find

Thepd 2 sp0 summary

ThePD2SP0 Summary

  • Your original estimate of the LOC you expect to develop.

  • The actual LOC you developed.

  • Your original estimate of the time required for each phase.

  • The actual time required for each phase.

  • The total number and the percent of defects injected in each phase.

  • The total number and the percent of defects removed in each phase

Task planning

Task Planning

  • Task planning involves estimating the development time and completion data for each project task.

  • It also provides a basis for tracking schedule progress.



  • Time and Schedule Management

  • Requirements Management

  • Design and Work Breakdown Structure

  • Development

  • Reporting

  • Earned Value Estimation

Time and schedule management

Time and Schedule Management

  • Enter initial project data in the project plan summary (PDSP0).

  • Complete Initial Time Schedule Template (SPT).

  • Begin Time Recording (TRT).

Requirements planning

Requirements Planning

  • Complete the Requirements Work Template (RWT) in the Excel workbook.

    • Constraints are logical statements

    • Criteria are performance statements

Design and work breakdown

Design and Work Breakdown

  • Use developed requirements document.

  • Complete a Work Breakdown Structure

  • Estimate the required development time.

  • Complete the task plan (WBS).



  • Complete the project plan summary with actual time, defect, and size data.

  • Complete the PIP (PD2SP0).

  • Coding Standard

  • Size measurement

  • Process improvement Proposal

Rules of the game

Rules of the Game

  • Please keep accurate track of time.

  • YOU WILL NOT BE GRADED ON YOUR TIME OR QUALITY from this report!! Quality measurement comes from testing

  • Keep your programs simple. You will learn as much from small programs as from large ones.

  • Keep your reports and standards simple and short.

  • Do not hesitate to copy or build on the PD2SP materials.

Rules of the game ii

Rules of the Game II

  • Do it right the first time. If you are not sure, find out.

  • Software is not a solo business so you do not have to work alone.

  • You must, however, produce your own estimates, designs, and code.

  • You may have others review your work and you may change it as a result. You should note this help in your process report, include the review time you and your associates spend, and log the defects found.



  • Your process report must be:

    • complete

    • legible

    • in the specified order

  • Your process data must be:

    • accurate

    • precise

    • self-consistent

The pd 2 sp0 process

The PD2SP0 Process

  • A simple defined personal process

  • Use your current design and development methods.

  • Gather data on your work:

  • time spent by phase

  • defects found in compile and test

Prepare a summary report

Prepare a summary report.

  • A project plan summary form

  • A process script

  • A time recording log

  • A defect reporting log

  • A defect type standard

More process

More Process

  • Planning - estimate development time

  • Development - develop the product using your current methods

  • Postmortem - complete the project plan summary, with the time spent and defects found and injected in each phase.

  • Design - design the program, using your current design methods

The end of the beginning

The End of the Beginning

Defect type standard

Defect type standard

  • Date defect was found.

  • Defect number.

  • Defect type (documentation, syntax, assignment, interface, etc.).

  • Phase where defect was injected.

  • Phase where defect was removed.

  • Time it took to fix the defect.

  • If injected while fixing another defect, that defect’s number.

  • A succinct description of the defect. The project plan summary holds the estimated and actual project data.
