Making the Change to Agile: How A-10 OFP Development Accomplished the Impossible
Supporting a 45-year-old airframe with legacy software written in several languages across decades
of engineering efforts is difficult in and of itself. Changing the development lifecycle model to support
modern software development business practices is impossible: almost. This paper explores how the
A-10 Operational Flight Program (OFP) software development team studied, transitioned, and then
embraced agile methods and the results that followed.
The 309 th Software Engineering Group (SWEG) at Hill AFB is known for developing technological “firsts,”
but the Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality Computing (ARVRC) Project inadvertently achieved a new
first for the organization, being that the female members outnumbered the males.
