Abstract [en]

This master’s dissertation stands as a guideline for defining a measurement program for GEEE that can be piloted at the Gothenburg site EEEG. The measurement program is based on the “CMMI process area Measurements and Analysis, Level 2”. The proposed measurement program is designed in such a way that is applicable for repeatable process measurement with potential minor alters depending on the nature of the process being examined. Major effort has been made on creating a program that not only collects the numerical data but also delivers substantial results in terms of goal setting, data analysis and decision making. Designing a process for measurement facilitate organizational strategy toward process improvements. This measurement program is designed with the help of some well-known methods such as: GQM (Goal-Question-Metric), PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) and ETVX (Entry-Task-Validation- Exit) where five major phases are resulted, namely; Identify, Define, Collect data, Analysis, Evolve, thereafter embedded in a template-shaped tool. The whole template, after a complete fulfillment, would provide the organization with a guideline to achieve the organizational objectives. It is vital to mention that this template itself does not improve the processes. It only shows the status of the chosen project/process after having the filled template executed. What this template generates is to provide the stakeholders with necessary information and basis to make informed decision afterwards in order to improve the chosen processes/projects. Since the processes in “Maturity Level 2 of CMMI” are project based, it is important the status of processes can be measured and communicated. This procedure plays a crucial role in creating a platform for moving to the next maturity level.
