Software Process Improvement Methods for a Split Development Team 981990
As electronic systems for off-highway applications become increasingly complex, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) must rely on outside suppliers to design the electronics and application software for these systems. Often, a combined development team is formed, with engineers from both the OEM and the supplier working together to design the system.
While many methods for software process improvement exist, few of these methods deal directly with the unique challenges of coordinating and implementing software improvements for a geographically- and politically-split development team. The objective of this paper is to outline methods that may be used to create and develop a software process for such a split development team.
