Agile Requirements Generation Model: A Soft-structured Approach to Agile Requirements Engineering

Soundararajan, Shvetha 18 August 2008 (has links)
The agile principles applied to software engineering include iterative and incremental development, frequent releases of software, direct stakeholder involvement, minimal documentation and welcome changing requirements even late in the development cycle. The Agile Requirements Engineering applies the above mentioned principles to the Requirements Engineering process. Agile Requirements Engineering welcomes changing requirements even late in the development cycle. This is achieved by using the agile practice of evolutionary requirements which suggests that requirements should evolve over the course of many iterations rather than being gathered and specified upfront. Hence, changes to requirements even late in the development cycle can be accommodated easily. There is however, no real process to the agile approach to Requirements Engineering. In order to overcome this disadvantage, we propose to adapt the Requirements Generation Model (a plan-driven Requirements Engineering model) to an agile environment in order to structure the Agile Requirements Engineering process. The hybrid model named the Agile Requirements Generation Model is a soft-structured process that supports the intents of the agile approach. This model combines the best features of the Requirements Generation Model and Agile Software Development. / Master of Science

KTH Hyperloop : En studie om ett studentdrivet radikalt innovationsprojekt / KTH Hyperloop : A Study of a Student Driven Radical Innovation Project

Atterblad, Rasmus, Strinnholm, Mathias January 2021 (has links)
För att företag ska behålla konkurrenskraftighet på dagens dynamiska marknad krävs en hög grad av innovation. KTH Hyperloop är ett studentprojekt på KungligaTekniska Högskolan som är mitt uppe i ett radikalt innovationsprojekt med målet att förändra hur vi transporterar oss i framtiden. Projektet kretsar kring skapandet av en farkost som ska transporteras i vakuum med hjälp av elektromagnetism. Syftet med detta arbete var att öka förståelsen kring produktutvecklingsprocessen av ett innovationsprojekt som KTH Hyperloop, ett projekt som drivs av enbart studenter med hög personalomsättning utan ersättning. Studien har undersökt två forskningsfrågor kopplade till KTH Hyperloop som ett radikalt innovationsprojekt. Studien inleddes med att göra en grundlig litteraturstudie där relaterade områden undersöktes och en teoretisk referensram byggdes upp. De områden som undersöktes var agila metoder, organisationsstrukturer, radikal innovation och motivation. Vidare i arbetet gjordes en kvalitativ intervjustudie med fyra respondenter från KTHHyperloop. Från resultatet i denna studie kan lärdomar användas i liknande projekt om vad som gynnar respektive hämmar radikala innovationsprojekt. Studien visar att inre motivation är en stor faktor till varför personer söker sig till ett studentprojekt som KTH Hyperloop men det krävs även yttre motivationsfaktorer såsom goda resultat i projektet. För att organisera ett radikalt innovationsprojekt under hög omsättning av personal krävs agila arbetsmetoder och stor informationsspridning som genomsyrar alla nivåer i organisationen. / To enable businesses to maintain strong competitiveness in today’s dynamical marketplace they need a high level of innovation. KTH Hyperloop is a student project in Sweden Stockholm at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), currently in the middle of a radical innovation project with the goal to change future transportation. The main idea of the project is to create a vehicle which will be transported in a vacuum by electromagnetism. The purpose of this thesis is to increase the knowledge of the product development process of an innovation project such as KTH Hyperloop, a project driven and executed only by students with high staff turnover without any form of compensation. This study analyzed two research questions linked to KTH Hyperloop seen as a radical innovation project. The study was initiated by conducting a thorough literature study. Related areas were examined and a theoretical frame of references was created. Litterature areas examined were motivation, agile methods, organizational structures and radical innovation. Further into the project, a qualitative interview study which included four respondents from KTH Hyperloop was conducted . Results from this study can be applied to similar projects regarding beneficial and inhibitory factors to a radical innovation project. The results of this study shows that intrinsic motivation is one of the major factors to why people apply to a student project as KTH Hyperloop. It is also important to have extrinsic motivational factors such as achieving good results in the project. Another conclusion that this study shows is organizing a radical innovation project under a high turnover of staff requires agile work methods. Also, the project needs to have aspread of information that reaches all levels in the organization to be able to reach radical innovation results.

The agile methods : an analytical comparison of five agile methods and an investigation of their target environment : a thesis presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Information Sciences in Information Systems at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand

Strode, Diane Elizabeth Unknown Date (has links)
This study defines the systems development methodologies named agile methods and investigates the environmental conditions where agile methods are most suitable. A definition of agile methods was developed using an analytical comparativeframework to investigate five of the earliest published agile methods; Dynamic SystemsDevelopment Method, Extreme Programming, Scrum, Adaptive Software Development,and Crystal Methods. The framework decomposed each method into its componentparts; philosophy, models, techniques, tools, scope, outputs, practice, and the extent towhich the method may be adapted to a situation. Based on this analysis and a literaturereview, a theoretical model of the target environment for agile methods was developed.This theoretical model is a proposed set of organisation, people, project, technology,and domain factors that relate to the successful use of an agile method.A mixed method research methodology was used. A qualitative design, consisting ofpositivist case studies, was used to test the theoretical model. Data was gathered fromnine software development projects, both agile and non-agile, using questionnaires andinterviews of project leaders. Then cross-case analysis was carried out on each projectfactor in the theoretical model. The relationship between environmental factors andagile method usage was investigated using non-parametric quantitative data analysis.This led to a revised model of the target environment for agile methods. The empiricaldata showed that specific organisational culture factors correlate with effective use of anagile method. These include the organisational characteristics of feedback and learning,teamwork, empowerment of people, collaboration, leadership, loyalty, and a resultsorientedculture that values entrepreneurship, innovation and risk taking.This research is significant for method users, those carrying out empirical research into agile methods, and those carrying out studies of systems development methodologies.

Dynamiska metoder för små systemutvecklingsprojekt

Ahmed, Reham January 2003 (has links)
<p>Litteratur inom systemutvecklingsområdet visar behov av nya snabbare systemutvecklingsmetoder. Orsaken är komplexiteten både i systemutvecklings</p><p>projekten och i organisationer, där systemutveckling sker. Nu föredras små projekt, som omfattar färre än tio deltagare och genomförs på mindre än ett år. De traditionella systemutvecklingsmetoder anses vara lämpliga för stora projekt. Det finns nya systemutvecklingsmetoder, som får benämningen dynamiska metoder, för små projekt. I detta examensarbete studeras faktorer för två dynamiska metoder som gör dem lämpliga för små projekt. De två dynamiska metoderna som kommer att studeras är Extreme Programming och en specifik dokumenterad anpassning av RUP.</p><p>Syftet med detta examensarbete är att studera metoddokumentationen för två dynamiska metoder för att reda ut i vilken utsträckning de passar för små projekt. Ett ytterligare syfte är att genom analys av andras erfarenheter om tillämpningar av de två metoderna redogöra för det som styrker argumenten om deras lämplighet för små projekt.</p><p>För att besvara frågeställningen studerades litteratur och ett antal artiklar. Två telefonintervjuer genomfördes också för att besvara en av de två delfrågorna, som tillsammans utgör frågeställningen för denna studie. Resultatet visar att den specifikt dokumenterade anpassade RUP inte följer alla aspekter för små projekt. Däremot följer Extreme Programming alla de aspekterna.</p>

Using Feature Models For Reusability In Agile Methods

Jedyk, Marcin 01 June 2011 (has links) (PDF)
The approach proposed in this thesis contributes to implementing source code reuse and re-engineering techniques for agile software development. This work includes an introduction to feature models and some of the Feature Oriented Software Development (FOSD) practices to achieve a lightweight way of retrieving source code. A Feature model created during the course of following FOSD practices serves as an additional layer of documentation which represents the problem space for the developed application. This thesis proposes linking source code with such a feature model for the purpose of identifying and retrieving code. This mechanism helps with accessing the code segment corresponding to a feature with minimal effort, thus suits agile development methods. At the moment, there is a gap between feature oriented approaches and agile methods. This thesis tries to close this gap between high-level approaches for software modelling (feature modelling) and agile methods for software development.

Scrum och utmaningar : En kvalitativ studie om vilka utmaningar praktiserande står inför agila arbetsmetoden Scrum

Forsö, Olle, Erić, Filip January 2017 (has links)
Agila arbetsmetoder bygger på iterativ utveckling och snabba leveranser. Dennakandidatuppsats har genomförts mot praktiserande som har erfarenhet av att arbeta enligt agila arbetsmetoder. Då IT-projekt misslyckas i stor omfattning och kritik riktas mot Scrum är temat för denna uppsats aktuell. Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka utmaningar praktiserande står inför när dearbetar enligt den agila arbetsmetoden Scrum. För att undersöka detta genomfördes enkvalitativ datainsamling i form av intervjuer på fem deltagare som har erfarenhet av att arbeta med Scrum. Kategoriseringar gjordes utifrån empirin och teorin har sedan förstärktdessa kategoriseringar. Undersökningen kom fram till att praktiserande av Scrum stod inför utmaningar inom Agil definition och Scrum, att samarbeta enligt Scrum samt resultat och målbild. / Agile methods are based on iterative development and fast delivery. This essay has beenconducted against practitioners who have experience working in accordance with agilemethods. As IT projects fail to a large extent and criticism is directed against Scrum,makes the topic of the essay relevant. The purpose of the study was to investigate the challenges that practitioners face when they work according to the agile method Scrum. To investigate this, a qualitative data collection was conducted by interviewing five respondents who have experience working with Scrum. Categorizations were made based on empirical theory, and the theory has then reinforced these categorizations. The investigation found that practitioners face challenges that can be divided into agile definition and Scrum, cooperation according to Scrum, as well as results and goals.
