Mission Statement

The Requirements Analysis and Capability Delivery (RACD) team prepares and supports software and services that: 1) enable user access to and use of XSEDE federated infrastructure, and 2) enable infrastructure and service providers to federate with XSEDE. Starting from XSEDE prioritized user requirements (use cases) RACD coordinates the engineering work necessary to integrate software and services into production at SPs and campuses, as XSEDE central services, as external vendor services, or on user personal systems.  RACD uses engineering best practices and tools, works with external vendors and software partners to minimize integration cost to XSEDE, and aims to maximize ROI to XSEDE and the NSF.

Roles

Although individuals have assigned roles, our intention is to be fluid between integration and evaluation/testing engineers.

Requirements Analysis

  • Assist CEE in preparing use cases

  • Work with the UREP to establish priorities
  • Prepare Capability Delivery Plans "CDPs"
  • Identity and manage proposed activities in JIRA
  • Manage defects and feature requests in JIRA
  • Help prepare design documents and draft implementation plans
  • Coordinate activities with collaborators

Development/Integration Engineering

  • Prepare component packages and admin documentation
  • Help prepare user documentation
  • Work CEE to prepare training material
  • Prepare testing plans
  • (Minor) development
  • Maintain defects and feature requests in JIRA

Evaluation/Testing Engineering

  • Help identify component and partners with solutions that fill gaps
  • Evaluate potential components
  • Test components that are ready for production
  • Help analyze/reproduce potential defects
  • Maintain defects and feature requests in JIRA
