LAPPI kurssi

Julkaistu 15.9.2014

Tehokas tapa mallintaa prosessisi LAPPI menetelmän avulla!

Käytännön ohjelmistoprosessin ja tuotelaadun parannuksiin on usein haasteellista päästä kiinni. Prosessiparannusten on osoitettu tuottavan selkeitä kustannussäästöjä, joten resurssien sijoittaminen kehitystoimiin on perusteltua. LAPPI (A light-weight technique to practical process modeling and improvement target identification) -mallinnustekniikka tarjoaa käytännönläheisen tavan aloittaa SPI (Software Process Improvement) ja tunnistaa yrityksen ohjelmistokehityksen kipupisteet. LAPPI on kehitetty Itä-Suomen yliopiston ja kotimaisten ohjelmistoyritysten yhteistyönä. Tekniikkaa on käytetty yli 30 yrityksessä ja sen on havaittu toimivan hyvänä lähtökohtana kehitysprojekteille. LAPPI vaikuttaa positiivisesti työntekijöiden motivaatioon, eikä vaadi suuria resursseja ja tuottaa nopeasti näkyviä tuloksia.

FiSMA ry tarjoaa yksipäiväisen koulutuksen, joka antaa valmiuden tekniikan käyttöön. Koulutus toteutetaan interaktiivisena työpajana, jossa tekniikkaa käytetään esimerkkiprosessiin. LAPPI-koulutuksen jälkeen pystyt tekemään yrityksesi prosessit ja niiden ongelmakohdat näkyväksi helpolla ja kustannustehokkaalla tavalla.

Light-weight Process Modeling Applying the LAPPI Technique

Abstract: Understanding the current state of software processes and their problem points is important. Without this understanding, software process improvement (SPI) resources may be allocated to less meaningful targets. SPI work can be challenging to initiate. This interactive one day training introduces ‘LAPPI’ (Light-weight Technique to Practical Process Modeling and Improvement Target Identification) technique for process modeling and improvement target identification. The technique is suited to organizations of all sizes, and can be integrated with various SPI initiatives. LAPPI was developed incrementally in multiple academia-industry collaboration projects and by industry actors themselves. Our evaluation of the LAPPI technique in 42 studies conducted in 31 companies indicates that the technique really does model the current process and can identify the points of improvement in the process. Practical experience shows that LAPPI provides a cost-effective technique for process modeling and improvement target identification especially in small and medium-sized enterprises. It is most useful in the diagnosing phase of SPI. It helps the company to understand the current processes and the organizational interactions, and to create a process description baseline. LAPPI will help you initiate SPI in an efficient manner.

The aim of the ”Light-weight Process Modeling Applying the LAPPI Technique” training is to show participants how to apply the LAPPI technique in practice. The training consists of lectures and two practical modeling workshops where the use of the LAPPI technique is explained and the LAPPI technique is tested. The participants are asked to model a “typical” software process (which they can later adapt to their own circumstances). The limitations and the theme are given in the training.

Participants will leave the training with a good understanding of how to apply the LAPPI technique to make processes and their problem points visible in their own companies/places of work. Applying the LAPPI technique gives the software companies a practical tool for initiating process improvement efforts.

What software professionals think of LAPPI: “Makes things [how processes really are executed] visible in a way that other methods tried do not”, “Opens discussion in a way that is not enabled by normal process assessments”, “Makes you feel like a part of the effort, good for motivation”, “Makes challenges visible and makes it easier to talk about them”, “Makes it easier to be honest [about how work is actually done in our company]”, “Easy to apply, doesn’t require any special skills, all you need to know is what you do in your day-to-day job”

Biography: Anu Raninen (PhD, software engineering) works as a consultant at Sogeti Finland Oy. She is a software process improvement (SPI) and quality assurance professional with strong research and consulting background. She worked as a researcher and project manager in University of Eastern Finland’s School of Computing for eight years. During this time she worked in several projects in collaboration with software industry aiming to improve the software development processes of Finnish companies. She has published several international peer-reviewed research publications on SPI and related topics. Dr. Raninen has a deep knowledge of standards and models related to software development and process improvement, e.g. ISO/IEC 15504, CMMI, ISO/IEC 12207, ISO/IEC 29110.

Her PhD thesis is titled “Practical Process Improvement: How to Initiate SPI in a Small Company”. The focus of the thesis is on software companies’ practical need to improve their software development processes. The main contribution of the thesis is the LAPPI technique.

In addition to SPI, Anu Raninen has a strong interest in software testing and has acted as a consultant on several test process improvement projects of several software companies. In addition, she has worked closely with the development of ISO/IEC 29119 – Software testing standard and ISO/IEC 33063 – Process assessment model for software testing in Finland.
