Improving the Software Upgrade Value Stream
Author(s)Ippolito, Brian; Murman, Earll M.
This paper reports findings from a two-year study to identify Lean practices for deriving software requirements from aerospace system level requirements, with a goal towards improving the software upgrade value stream. The study was undertaken as part of the MIT Lean Aerospace Initiative. Three detailed case studies and 128 surveys collected from ten "successful" mission critical aerospace software upgrade programs support seven major findings.
