A Learning Support for the Definition of Process Flexibility


At present, software development in the automotive industry is characterized by frequent changes caused by new innovations, fast-growing system complexity, growing software portion in cars, changing business relationships. This dynamical environment demands for flexible software processes. In order to improve a software development process with respect to flexibility, it is necessary to characterize what kind of flexibility is required. Therefore, we defined a set of requirements for desired processes based on our process analysis in DaimlerChrys-ler’s engineering departments and analysis of related contributions proposed in the literature. Based on this requirement the existed processes can be analyzed to identify its improvement potential. The application of the requirements is illustrated in the context of a case study.
