4.22 Hardware Development

Hardware development is often dependent upon a waterfall approach because half an incomplete circuit chip is often not very helpful. Our effort is to align the agile ALM with the engineering lifecycle required to design and implement hardware. This is often required when we consult with firms that create firmware.

4.22.1 Firmware

Firmware is software that must be created and embedded in the hardware that consists of the complete hardware-software component. We view agile process maturity as part of this alignment and have seen teams succeed quite well even when using a hybrid waterfall approach for the hardware and an agile approach for the firmware.
