Benefits of Pattern-Based Systems Processes

Patterns are re-usable, configurable Models:

  • Projects don’t generate new “from scratch” models—they configure patterns instead;
  • Obtain system plans, requirements, designs, analyses, with less effort, faster, higher completeness and consistency.

Patterns describe re-usable requirements, designs, failure modes, analyses of product lines, platforms, and system families:

  • Key to an explicit discipline of platform management, modularity;
  • Creates economic leverage–people, resources, infrastructure, enterprise IP.

Pattern approach reduces modeling efforts and necessary modeling skills for individual projects:

  • by providing configurable re-usable Models for development project users;
  • projects don’t generate new models – they configure Patterns;
  • Patterns are re-usable, configurable Models of requirements and designs;
  • Obtain requirements / designs with less effort, time, greater quality/completeness.

People learn your enterprise’s own Shared Patterns for Products, Services, or other internal Systems:

  • These requirements and design patterns make explicit “hidden IP” that otherwise requires years to learn–your Shared Enterprise Patterns form foundation for a Learning Organization;
  • Instead of flat Lessons Learned that must be searched, learning condensed into configurable requirements/design model (Pattern).
