This article presents practical experiences and lessons learned in defining and implementing an agile model-driven development process using the MDD tools chain. This process and its implementation inherit the merits of scrum, extreme programming, and the Unified Software Development Processes. The experience data demonstrates that combining MDD practices with agile development process can significantly reduce software development cycle time and increase productivity and quality.
