Neste contexto, uma tendência que tem apresentado importantes benefícios é a área de desenvolvimento ágil de linhas de produtos de software. Linhas de produtos de software é uma importante estratégia de reuso para minimizar custos e tempo de entrega das aplicações, além de maximizar a qualidade e a produtividade do desenvolvimento de software. Entretanto, desenvolver linhas de produtos requer esforços e custos iniciais para apresentar resultados significativos, uma vez que envolve planejamento sistemático, gerenciamento de pontos comuns e variáveis dos produtos e design flexível e detalhado, aspectos que aumentam sua complexidade. Por outro lado, a abordagem ágil apresenta como foco o código e tem seu desenvolvimento realizado de forma iterativa. Além disso, esta metodologia encoraja práticas e valores como comunicação face a face, pequenas iterações, planejamento e design simples e incremental. Comparando linhas de produtos de software e métodos ágeis, diferentes aspectos são identificados. No entanto, pesquisas recentes mostram similaridades entre elas, como: aumento de qualidade e produtividade no desenvolvimento de software e redução de custos e tempo de entrega das aplicações. Portanto, visando diminuir custos e esforços iniciais necessários para adoção de uma linha de produtos de software, este trabalho propõe um processo de escopo ágil para linhas de produtos de software, unindo os benefícios das duas abordagens. O processo proposto é avaliado através de um estudo de caso industrial

Exploring the difference between Agile and Lean:A stakeholder perspective

Islam, Mohammad Shahidul, Tura, Sentayehu January 2013 (has links)
In this thesis, we have identified the difference between Agile and Lean methodsbased on stakeholder’s perspectives. To achieve the goal we have dealwith only Agile and Lean principles. In addition, in order to identify thestakeholders from Agile and Lean principles we have used the relevant practicesfrom both sides. As the principles of Agile manifesto are directly followedby most of the organizations, we have also used Agile principles directlyin this research. On the other hand lean methods have no pure principles,as a result we have used the most common and popular lean principlesderived from different authors. We have only considered the mostrelevant principles that might be useful in software development. To achievea stronger result of this thesis we have also considered stakeholder theory.Moreover we have identified the stakeholder’s involvement with Agile/Leanprinciples and stakeholder theory.

Implementing Agile project methods in globally distributed teams

Gillo Nilsson, Catherine, Karlsson, Daniel January 2015 (has links)
The objective of the study was to generate a ‘theory’/ ‘hypothesis’  on the important factors to focus on in implementing agile project methods in globally distributed teams. Using the grounded theory method, five key categories emerged from the so-called theoretical sampling, which entails the joint collection of data, coding and analysis. The study involved 33 individuals in four different companies, three in the Philippines and one in Sweden. The data collected for this thesis consisted of individual interviews in the Philippines and Sweden (Sept-Dec 2014), focus group sessions, observations of formal agile practices and experiences in the substantive area, conducted in the Philippines during the period Sept-Nov 2014.  The following five key categories emerged as the main concerns of the individuals involved in implementing agile project methods in globally distributed teams in software development projects:  (i) Working Communication, (ii)  Self-organizing Teams, (iii) People-centric organization, (iv) Continuous Learning and (v) Sustaining Infrastructure.  The respondents meant that these concerns should be addressed and resolved in such a way that the implementation of Agile project methods would resemble the case of a collocated Agile project team. The key categories, their fundamental characteristics and the subconcepts behind them were presented and analyzed in relation to the empirical data.The analysis included reported incidents and direct citations from the respondents, focus groups and from observations during the field study, in order to shed light on the process used to arrive to the categories, as well as explain the characteristics of the concepts in the emerging ‘grounded hypothesis’.

Agila metoder i stora företag : Hinder och möjligheter under initiativfasenvid implementation av agila metoder

Vaarala, Robert, Svernell, Johan January 2014 (has links)
Som svar på ökade krav på IT-relaterade produkter har de så kallade agilautvecklingsmetoderna uppfunnits. Förespråkare för agila metoder hävdar att bättreresultat kan uppnås genom minskning av tydliga, strikta kravspecifikationer,dokumentation och planering inom projekt till förmån för ett större fokus på småsjälvorganiserande arbetsgrupper och ett iterativt utvecklingssätt. De värderingar och den praxis som är förknippade med agila metoder ter sig vara meranpassade för små företag , på grund av den tunga betoningen på små självständigagrupper och brist på formell styrning och kontrakt. Syftet med detta examensarbete harsin grund i den oppositionen. Vilka omständigheter uppstår när en avdelning på ett stortföretag vill omvandla sin projektmetodik till en agil? Specifikt utförs en fallstudie på enutvecklingsavdelning ett stort IT-företag med över 69 000 anställda världen över. I det studerade fallet visar resultaten att intresset för agila metoder är korrelerat mednärheten till mjukvaruutvecklingsprocessen . Mjukvaruutvecklarna i studien anser att detfinns stora problem med dagens utvecklingsprocess och fann bristen av flexibilitet ikravhantering samt begränsat kundengagemang oerhört frustrerande. Andragruppmedlemmar var mindre bekymrade. Genom att anamma företagets lednings samtkundens synsätt blev det klart att mer agila utvecklingsprocesser försvårar strategiskplanering av företags totala projektportföljer. Författarna föreslår att en agil transformation inom ett stort företag kräver starkaförespråkare inte bara från utvecklarlaget utan även från företagets affärssida samtkunden. Anammandet av agila metoder ställer stora krav på tillit i relationen mellanutvecklingsteam och ledning samt mellan utvecklingsteam och kund, eftersomsamarbetet till lägre grad bör styras av strikta kravspecifikationer som speglas i fastakontrakt.

Using Agile Methods for Software Development in R&D Scenario

Guarino de Vasconcelos, Luis Eduardo, Kusumoto, André Yoshimi, Leite, Nelson Paiva Oliveira, Lopes, Cristina Moniz Araújo 10 1900 (has links)
ITC/USA 2015 Conference Proceedings / The Fifty-First Annual International Telemetering Conference and Technical Exhibition / October 26-29, 2015 / Bally's Hotel & Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV / Due to the quick change of business processes in organizations, software needs to adapt quickly to meet new requirements by implementing new business rules. In Research and Development (R&D) scenario, the research is highly non-linear and changes are inevitable. In this context, it is known that traditional methodologies (e.g. waterfall) may lead to the detection of failures late, increase the time and cost of development and maintenance of software. On the other hand, agile methodologies are based on Test- Driven Development (TDD), maintain the technical debt under control, maximize the Return on Investment and reduce the risks for customers and companies. In this paper, we show the use of Scrum and TDD in the development of an experimental tool that aims to make the calibration in real time of the rudder of a fighter aircraft. The preliminary results allowed to increase the coverage testing of the software and hence the quality of the tool.

Modelo híbrido de gestión de portafolio para pequeñas empresas / Hybrid Portfolio Management Model for Small Enterprises

Feijoo Pérez, Nataly Eliana 04 April 2020 (has links)
El objetivo del presente trabajo de investigación es proponer un modelo híbrido para la gestión de portafolio en pequeñas empresas, siguiendo buenas prácticas de enfoques adaptativos y predictivos. El modelo propuesto se basa en el supuesto de que cada organización ya tiene identificado recursos humanos con el compromiso, habilidades y experiencia necesarios para trabajar bajo una nueva gestión estratégica con métodos agiles. El modelo adaptativo está basado en el Agile Practice Guide (Project Management Institute, 2017), el estándar para la gestión de portafolio (Project Management Institute, 2017) y la Business Case Essentials: A Guide to Structure and Content (Schmidt, 2003) que es una guía para la elaboración de casos de negocio. De estos, se han tomado conceptos, técnicas y herramientas que han permitido proponer un modelo sencillo de gestión de portafolio que pueda ser adaptado a pequeñas organizaciones. Por último, es importante indicar que la propuesta del trabajo de investigación se elaboró teniendo como modelo una pequeña empresa de consumo masivo, llamada AFS Consumo EIRL, ubicada en Lima – Perú. Previo a iniciar con el diseño del modelo, se realizaron algunos análisis y diagnósticos, por medio de entrevistas a los miembros de la organización, para finalmente proponer el modelo descrito en el presente trabajo. / The objective of this work is to propose a Hybrid Portfolio Management Model in small enterprises, following adaptive and predictive approaches and applying the Standard for Portfolio Management. This model is based on the assumption that each organization has already identified human resources with the commitment, skills and experience necessary to work under a new strategic agile management. The adaptive model is based on the Agile Practice Guide (Project Management Institute, 2017), The Standard for Portfolio Management (Project Management Institute, 2017) and the guide Business Case Essentials: A Guide to Structure and Content (Schmidt, 2003). This work takes concepts, techniques and tools from these three documents to propose a simple portfolio management model that can be adapted to any organization. Finally, it is important to indicate that the research work proposal was prepared using as a model, a small mass consumption company called AFS Consumo EIRL, located in Lima - Peru. Before starting to design this model, some analyzes and diagnoses were carried out through interviews with the members of the organization to finally propose the model described in this work. / Trabajo de investigación

A contribuição da indústria da manufatura no desenvolvimento de software / The contribution of manufacturing industry in software development

Eduardo Teruo Katayama 20 October 2011 (has links)
Os Métodos Ágeis surgiram no final da década de 90, como uma alternativa aos métodos prescritivos de desenvolvimento de software. Eles propõem uma nova abordagem de desenvolvimento, eliminando gastos com documentação excessiva e burocrática, enfatizando a interação entre as pessoas e as atividades que efetivamente trazem valor ao cliente. Nos últimos anos, diversos princípios e práticas baseados na indústria de manufatura foram incorporadas pelos Métodos Ágeis de desenvolvimento de software. Um dos princípios absorvidos é o de melhorar a eficácia de uma organização através de melhorias globais. Embora este princípio seja bem difundido nos Métodos Ágeis, utilizá-lo não é uma tarefa fácil. Nem sempre é fácil ter uma visão global do processo de desenvolvimento. Além disso, para realizar melhorias globais é necessário descobrir a causa para possíveis problemas, o que também pode ser uma tarefa difícil. Esse trabalho investiga duas abordagens da indústria de manufatura que enxergam uma organização como um sistema no qual todas as partes são inter-relacionadas. Com base nelas, três abordagens de desenvolvimento de software existentes são analisadas. Finalmente, um estudo comparativo foi feito para avaliar as principais características dos métodos de desenvolvimento estudados. Esse estudo estende o trabalho feito por Abrahamssom et al., no livro Agile Software Development: Current Research and Future Directions, avaliando o desempenho dos métodos seguindo o arcabouço proposto pelos mesmos autores. / Agile methods appeared in the late 90\'s as an alternative approach to the classic prescriptive planning approaches to software development. They propose a new style of development, eliminating excessive and bureaucratic documentation, and emphasizing the interactions between people collaborating to achieve high productivity and deliver high-quality software. In the last few years, several principles and practices based on the manufacturing industry were incorporated by Agile software development. One of the principles absorbed is to improve the effectiveness of an organization through an overall improvement. Although this principle is quite widespread in Agile Methods, using it is not an easy task. It is not easy to get the big picture of the development process. Moreover, to achieve overall improvements is necessary to discover the cause of possible problems, which can also be a difficult task. This work investigates two approaches in the manufacturing industry that shares the assumption that the whole organization is focused on overall throughput, not on micro-optimization. Based on then, three approaches to existing software development are analyzed. Finally, a comparative study was done to assess the main characteristics of the studied methods. This study extends the work done by Abrahamssom et al. In the book Agile Software Development: Current Research and Future Directions, evaluating the performance of the methods following the framework proposed by the same authors.
