Abstract

For real time embedded systems software performance is one of the most important quality attributes. Controlling and predicting the software performance in software is associated with a number of challenges. One of the challenges is to tailor the established and rather general performance activities to the needs and available opportunities of a specific organization. This study presents a qualitative methodology for tailoring process activities to a specific organization. The proposed methodology is used in case study performed in a large company that develops embedded platforms. A number of suggestions for modification and addition of process activities has been brought forward as a result of the study. The result can further be summarized as SPE in ernbedded platform development holds more opportunities for reuse, but also requires more focus on external stakeholders, continual training and coordination between projects.
