A conceptual framework for lean regulated software development
MetadataShow full item record
A growing number of companies are discovering that their software development processes must be in compliance with some form of regulation. This is particularly so when it comes to safety-critical or business-critical systems such as Automotive Software, Robotics, Medical Devices or Finan- cial Management systems. These regulations aect the soft- ware development process itself in various forms. Further- more, much attention is being given to ways of improving the eciency of businesses, for example, by adopting lean principles. This raises the question for how to adopt lean principles for software development within a regulated envi- ronment? This poster presents the results of our empirical research into lean and regulated software development. Built from a combination of data sources, we have developed a conceptual framework comprising ve primary components. In addition the relationships they have with both the central focus of the framework (the situated software development practices) and with each other are indicated.
