    Our Development

    Build a little. Test a little. Deliver.

    GCSS-J uses the agile development method. The results are multiple 20-day development cycles (or sprints) which culminate in a version release. With clearly defined requirements and input from the joint logistics community during development cycles, GCSS-J is able to rapidly develop, test, and field new functionality and enhanced capabilities to users. Requirement validation with users is conducted after every sprint, so there are opportunities to make adjustments based on user feedback. This event is called User Assessment (UA) which shows users a preview of new capabilities and enhancements. To participate in a UA event, please contact us.
