Purpose and goal

On the whole , the project has been able to achieve its overall objective to build enough knowledge about the visual methods to digitalize them in a way that allows their use in global teams and for continuous improvement purposes without adversely affecting the methods´ simplicity and usability.

Results and expected effects

The expected effects on reducing losses in decision making, planning and information management have been realized by making it possible to: - Display and see dependencies between different activities and deliverables in the plans - See the link between deviations and actions taken - Plan better by reusing knowledge from checksheets - Show how new knowledge (which resulted as lessons learned from resolved deviations) is associated with these deviations and keep this link over time

Approach and implementation

The selected setup in the consortium with industry partners as base for specifying requirements and later as test bench, academia as analysts and knowledge creators and a software provider that develops has proven to be very effective. Furthermore, the chosen method with requirement formulation in the form of hypotheses which are tested by implementing limited but complete functionality in the software prototype (so-called vertical slices) proved incredibly effective and resulted in commercializable software in record time.
