Abstract

It is widely recognized that software process improvement (SPI) engineers need to be trained by software engineering groups to perform quality SPI activities. However, such engineers are required to have a wide range of skills, and therefore it is difficult to properly determine the scope and goal of training courses. To solve such problems, the group companies of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation have developed a training course for SPI engineers that can provide practical content in a short period by focusing on skills for solving the real problems that SPI engineers often encounter in the field. This paper describes the design and implementation of the course, and proves its effectiveness with a questionnaire survey answered after taking the course from which results show that 67.7% of the trainees find themselves much more skilled than before, and 89.8% believe this is due to taking the course.
