Streamlining of the requirement process (English)
Abstract [sv]

The goal of this project was to make the requirement process at the Swedish Coastguard more effective. The first step to achieve this was done by locating bottle necks in the process with value stream mapping method. The result of this study showed that the biggest restriction in the requirement process was while examining older requirement documents to understand what elements were suitable for the particular project. This was followed by a study of literature, interviews and theory of Lean Production with the ambition to investigate how the requirement process was handled on other companies and how to improve the process on the Swedish coast guard. This led to a number of potential enhancements of the process which later was evaluated. Requirements written by different people in different organizations were analyzed in order to sort out if there were some similarities’ which could be used as standard elements in a future standardization of the process. Another part of the study was to investigate what attributes led to a good first impression of the document. The conclusion was that there were a number of different standard elements and that a detailed table of contents led to a good first impression. The total result of this project consists of a process description and a suggestion of a new way of working with the requirement process. This is presented on an A3-sheet which should be used as support during the development process on the Swedish Coastguard.
