    Defining a Factory Schema

    • 1 Comments
    So now you have an idea of what the factory schema is (‘What is a Factory Schema’ ), and hopefully we helped clear up some confusion you may have had there. We can now start looking at how these schemas are used by the factory. By way of an example...

    • 9 Comments
    Whenever anyone asks what I am working on these days, I have trouble conveying the value that guidance automation and software factories are bringing to our industry - and getting the penny to drop in those who enquire. I find that even seasoned, experienced...

    The Vicious Software Development Cycle

    • 3 Comments
    A while back I was forced to justify, in plain terms, why partners and customers require, and should adopt, an application framework like EFx or any automated guidance for that matter. After all, adopting this kind of offering (some see as an intrusion...

    Intrusion - This required an adjustment!

    • 0 Comments
    I figured I needed to explain my intrusion on the web via blogs. Most people have done this, and now I am no exception. For several years now I have looked sideways on my colleagues who have blogged. I vowed at one point I would never blog. This is...
