Abstract [en]

At a software development company, many kinds of tools is often used to manage projects and other types of resources. One task that is performed many times every day by project leaders and developers at these companies is to get an overview of active projects and software in development. This report will examine if a new tool can be introduced that will make it more efficient to complete this task.A specific company’s procedure of performing this task including the tools used in this procedure have been examined. To improve it, an already existing tool was analysed but did not meet the stakeholders requirement. Instead a new tool was designed and a prototype was implemented, based on the analysis of the existing tool.The result is a fully functional tool that can be used to get an overview of active projects, instead of using two different tools individually. Some initial usability tests also suggests that using this tool is more efficient. Although, it also shows that some information about projects can be harder to retrieve when using the new tool.
