Programming in the architecture for agile assembly

J. Gowdy, A.A. Rizzi
Proceedings 1999 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.99CH36288C)  
The goal of the Architecture for Agile Assembly AAA is to enable rapid deployment and recon guration of automated assembly systems through the use of cooperating, modular, robust, robotic agents.  ...  Thus, the structure of agent programs is carefully designed to allow packaging of all the information necessary for coordinated execution when downloaded to a physical agent.  ...  The authors would like to thank Ralph Hollis, Arthur Quaid, Zack Butler, and Patrick Muir for their invaluable work on the project and support for this paper.  ...

Architecture in an agile world

Steven Fraser, Ethan Hadar, Irit Hadar, Dennis Mancl, Grenville (Randy) Miller, Bill Opdyke
2009 Proceeding of the 24th ACM SIGPLAN conference companion on Object oriented programming systems languages and applications - OOPSLA '09  
The panel will address questions of interest that include: How are architecture practices applied in a world where 'agile' must co-exist with more traditional sequential processes and the scale and scope  ...  This panel will explore the apparent dichotomy of agilecentric and architecture-centric approaches to software development.  ...  Thus, we might finish the project, but not as intended. Can large components be assembled in a structured agile manner, rather than opportunistically?  ...
