University essay from IT-universitetet i Göteborg/Tillämpad informationsteknologi

Abstract: The fast moving area of mobile telecommunication forcescompanies to deliver functionality with increasing speed tocustomers. To deal with these challenges, Ericsson AB cre-ated a software process called Streamline Development(SD);which bridges the gap between long term thinking and agiledevelopment. SD is a process inspired by agile and leanmethodologies, focusing on small efficient teams with anend-to-end responsibility of development, short life cycles,and continious code integration. The purpose of streamlineis to take advantage of the benefits of shorter time to market,and to have a more flexible development set-up to aid thepossibility to make changes at anytime. The goal is to get tofaster development of products with higher quality.This article investigates SD and searches for different factorsthat could have an impact on the development process of afeature and extend the lead time. The paper will try to answerwhich factors restrict speed in Streamline Development? Theresults are 34 factors that restrict speed in SD. These factorsare divided into three areas and further divided into 12 cate-gories.The research was conducted as a case study at EricssonAB as a part of the bachelor thesis project course at the IT-University of Gothenburg during the spring of 2010.
