Martin L. Shoemaker, Software Architecture Analyst

I have worked as a consultant and mentor, offering my guidance and expertise to clients who need high-quality design services with UML, as well as custom software in the Windows and .NET environments. I describe myself as a Software Architecture Analyst because I like to work to better define requirements in order to define the right architecture and design, using both Agile and Orchestrated practices.

What I do:

  • I prevent mistakes, not just fix them later.
  • I reduce the costs and uncertainties in software development.
  • I understand customer requirements and deliver great architectures and solutions for those needs.
  • I grow my skill set and that of my team.

How I do it:

  • I use Five Step UML, my Agile requirements and architecture process, to sweep the problem domain at the start and identify risks and uncertainties.
  • I use Analysis and Architectural Patterns to plan a general solution that everyone can understand.
  • I use Model-Driven Estimating to prepare an estimate with high confidence, including identifying risks to the estimate.
  • I use Model-Driven Tracking to verify progress against the estimate and quickly spot emerging risks.
  • I teach my team how to use these tools for their individual tasks.

  1. Am interested in taking a Class for UML using Rational Rose. PM/BA for 15 years, but need to upgrade my skills…. Thx, Diana

    • Thanks, Diana. Unfortunately I have no public classes scheduled at this time. I may have some next year, but I doubt you want to wait that long. If that schedule changes, I will email you to let you know.
