Modeling Physical/Cyber-Physical Systems
March 17th with Mac Felsing at Innovate Virginia 2017:
Agile is not just for Software, anymore! In this Session, attendees will learn how apply modeling techniques to understand and describe physical products to build using agile practices, ( like Scrum for Hardware). They will learn and use techniques including modeling in color, feature/story naming, product description formats, and how to describe hardware interfaces in a fun interactive setting.
Scrum To The Stars: A Reflection of Iterative and Incremental Innovation in Aerospace
March 17th with Tom Friend at Innovate Virginia 2017:
From the beginning of manned flight, to the first step on the moon, the patterns of agility have guided both the exploration of aviation and space. As complexity continues to increase and resources become scarcer, the use of Agile and similar methodologies within the aerospace industry has become indispensable.
The history of aerospace extends over two thousand years, back to the earliest forms of aviation. From the story of Icarus to Chinese kites, mankind has been fascinated by flight. However, it has only been in the last few centuries that we have seen man take to the skies, beginning with balloons, then advancing to powered flight in 1903, followed closely by supersonic flight, spaceflight, and flight to other worlds.
Please join us as we reflect on both the successes and failures throughout the course of man’s quest for the heavens. We will discover some common patterns that lead to failure in various events in aviation, as well as examine missions and flights that met with success, and apply these lessons to our Agile toolbox as we look to replicate success in future endeavors.
