Jim McHale This post is the second installment in a two-part series describing our recent engagement with Bursatec to create a reliable and fast new trading system for Groupo Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV, the Mexican Stock Exchange).  This project combined elements of the SEI’s Architecture Centric Engineering (ACE) method, which requires effective use of software architecture to guide system development, with its Team Software Process (TSP), which is a team-centric approach to developing software that enables organizations to better plan and measure their work and improve software development productivity to gain greater confidence in quality and cost estimates. The first post examined how ACE was applied within the context of TSP. This posting focuses on the development of the system architecture for Bursatec within the TSP framework.
