Enabling Software Excellence at a Hardware Company

  • This presentation was created for a conference series or symposium and does not necessarily reflect the positions and views of the Software Engineering Institute.
  • Abstract

    ABB's Software Development Improvement Program strives toward continuous improvement by assessing progress and regularly validating achievements using industry models such as Capability Maturity Model Integration and other best practices as a reference. While the initiative is planned and coordinated by a small team from ABB headquarters, the people involved are embedded in all five of ABB's divisions.

    We present our four years of experience in building and nourishing a software community within a system engineering company dominated by hardware. We explain how we provide practices, tools, and training for thousands of developers and their managers spread across all but one continent. You will learn about the successes but also our challenges and lessons learned so far.
