BIT Development’s Journey toward Continuous Improvement
In January 2017, the second project with ReEngine, centered on Requirements Gathering, embarked. As the group delved into this event, they realized that every team was collecting requirements for a project entirely different which caused the event’s scope to become complicated and bloated. Thus, the group was told that a common, consistent, uniform process that every Development team will use should be established. The group switched focus to incorporating Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server (TFS) and how to use that system to input and track requirements. Using TFS, requirements for a project are entered directly into an electronic backlog as work items, which are then prioritized and broken down into tasks. TFS allows the project team to visualize the work in progress and provides insight to managers and agency stakeholders to a project’s transition through the SDLC.
