Software Engineering Across Boundaries: Student Project in Distributed Collaboration

1999 (English)In: IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication, ISSN 0361-1434, E-ISSN 1558-1500, Vol. 42, no 4, 286-296 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Geographically distributed software development projects have been made possible by rapid developments primarily within the data communication area. A number of companies recognize that distributed sollaboration has great potential for the near future. This report describes the empirical study of a cooperative student project located at two different geographical sites. The project was carried out at two universities, one in Sweden and one in finland. The initial goals were to give the students the opportunity to learn about the practical aspects of cooperation between two geographically seperate institutions and to study specific problems anticipated by the teachers with regard to communication, coordination, language, culture, requirements' handling, testing, and bug fixing. This report focuses on communication and coordination within the cooperative project as these were identified as the most significant problem areas. We also thought that these areas were the most interesting and the ones most likely to lead to improvements. This report not only describes our findings but also gives hints about what to think about when running similar projects both with respect to project related issues and teaching issues.
