Perpetually in Motion – The Digital Factory

Up till a few years ago, the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) was based on a few models, but the most prominent one was the “Waterfall” model. The traditional Waterfall model is a pre-defined linear set of phases that are executed sequentially. Given the rigid nature of the Waterfall model it provides zero room for any identification of early issues or visibility of the overall product status for business stakeholders. Documentation was a by-product of the entire process that provided little to no intrinsic value. Although this traditional SDLC model has succeeded for many years, there was always a craving for a more cost effective, collaborative and efficient methodology in the market. 

Conversely, the traditional factory model, whether it’s manufacturing screws, processing materials, or even managing manual work processes, constant scrutiny and adjustment of various parameters are essential. These adjustments are made to align with the ever-evolving market demands. They are value-driven changes that aim to make the end product superior, more competitive, and ultimately meet the increasing expectations of end consumers. 

At Hyniva, we firmly believe that the principles that have long driven improvement and efficiency in over a century of traditional manufacturing can also be applied to the world of software. Hyniva’s Digital Factory is a living, breathing machine that leverages the Agile Development framework to create a powerful process that promotes agility, adaptability, and collaboration. 

Key Differentiators

  • Iterative, Incremental Delivery Cycle for Visibility: Unlike the old, rigid production methods, an Agile Digital Factory operates on an iterative and incremental delivery cycle. Each phase provides clear visibility into the progress of the project, allowing for early identification of any issues that may arise. This approach ensures that problems can be addressed promptly, leading to more efficient and error-free software development.
  • Identify and Resolve Issues Early in the SDLC: The Software Development Life Cycle, or SDLC in short encompasses all stages of software creation. The Agile Digital Factory actively promotes early issue detection and resolution during each sprint or phase of the project, thus ensuring you can save time, resources, and ensure a higher quality end product. 
  • Actively Engage Business Stakeholders: Agile methodologies emphasize collaboration and close engagement with business stakeholders. This interaction ensures that the software being developed aligns perfectly with the business’s needs and goals. 
  • Eliminate the Need for Extensive Documentation: In traditional software development, extensive documentation is often required to manage complex processes. In contrast, the Agile Digital Factory streamlines this by focusing on delivering working software over comprehensive documentation. While documentation remains important, it is kept to a minimum, allowing teams to concentrate on producing functional, efficient software.
